My condolences to the families. I remember Sandy fondly. We worked side by side at the Hercules plant (Simonds Precision/BF Goodrich), as well as were “avid Second-Hand” shoppers in the 80’s and early 90’s. She was a joy to have has a dear friend and co-worker. She loved her family and spoke fondly of them in conversations to me often. Rest peacefully my dear. Joanne (Laframboise) Domme
