Dear Nettles Family, I was so shocked and sorry when I opened the newspaper & saw Sandy’s photo. I knew her through Tupperware & Jenny.

I always enjoyed our chats @ Benwood Kroger & hearing how the family was doing. I pray that you all will feel some peace during this difficult time. Love & Prayers, Ginger Kabala

We both lost someone near and dear to us our son’s, and now we have all lost a wonderful person. Iwas so saddened when I learned of her passing. I just couldn’t! Believe it, I kept waiting for her to come to wal mart. I love you and will miss you. God bless you.
