I wish I knew what to say or do for you all. No words could ever express my condolences for each and every one of you. I am so very sorry for the loss of your loved one. I know these are words that never seem to help in the healing process but I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers to each and everyone of y'all for the loss of your mom, meme, sister, and overall your best friend. She may be gone from this earth but she will never ever be forgotten by any of you. May god be with you in this difficult time and let him guide you and lead you to the comfort that he has to offer as you all started the healing process of losing your loved one. May god bless you with all the wonderful memories you have shared with this beautiful woman. Love and memories is the best thing to have at this time. Sending all my thoughts and prayers to all.

Your mom was a peach. She and Artie were so fun-loving, and I have great memories of sitting on the front step with her while her large wolf dog visited with my dogs! There were some really fun parties at your house, and I remember us digging for new potatoes in Jewett City in someone's back yard! She truly did a brave move, bringing you girls to Connecticut!

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Sandy’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort be with you to help you cope. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow and read of our amazing hope for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28) For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief please visit

God Bless, ABB employee
