So many memories going back to childhood. Our recent conversations were about our grade school and high school years. Life seemed pretty simple back then. Penny candy at Fowlers, riding bikes, jump robe and hopscotch. Also we and the CYO group would picnic at Thatcher Park. She was missing Florida and the wonderful friends she and Bruce shared over the years. My husband Hal is an ADK hiker and he and Bruce talked about the wonderful Adirondacks. I will miss this good friend and all our memories. Jim and family I am so sorry for your loss. Sandy was a truly lovely gal with a great sense of humor. She often would remind me that I was the wild one.

We miss your beautiful smile and telling us not to worry about the black snakes in Florida. We know you’re with Bruce now and are happy. Our condolences to the Weidman family from all of your neighbors here on Glengad.
I am so sorry for your loss. I met Sandy and Bruce in Ormond Beach thru my mom. They lived across the street from each other. My mom and Sandy were such good friends. When I look across the street at their house I can still see Bruce sitting in the garage. I will miss Sandy so much.A lovely lady.
