My thoughts and prayers go out to this loving family. Miss Sandra has been my neighbor and friend for over a year now. I really enjoyed our visits on her front porch, and she was always happy to see Kali Mae come running over to say hello. I am missing her dearly if we didn’t talk outside we talked on the phone almost every day. Her children took such great care of her one or the other was visiting her daily. Sandra will be truly missed. My God bless this family. Sharon Fontenot
