Very nice obituary. :) We love and will miss our sister and aunt. ♥ Peggy, John, Matthew, Mary and Michael
Our family is saddened to hear the news of Sandy's passing. My mom, Kathi (Crosby) Bartrem/Lenivov, was thrilled many years ago that Sandy approached me in a computer class we both took and asked me if I was my mother's daughter because they went to high school together. What a small world! I gave Sandy my mom's number and they reconnected and remained friends until my mom passed away almost 1 year ago. Our deepest condolences to Sandy's family and our prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Sending deepest sympathy and heartfelt thoughts to the Hansen & Bishop families. Sandy was a fun, wonderful person with a beautiful smile.
AAB was a woman who loved her Vernors more than anyone else I know. She had class and a great wit that I will forever admire. I am so happy to have known her. I miss her already
