Ron and Gloria Finch and FamiliesDear Ed, when you and Sandy last visited us in the summer of 2019 Sandy could still get about but wasn't aware of many things. One of our daughters came by with her six month old baby girl and Sandy's eyes brightened and she said 'baby.' We have never forgotten that and we know that you and your family will always remember certain words, certain looks and certain smiles. They will be with you forever. She was a special person. God bless you..
