The death of a loved one is the most devastating experience a family can face. At times, the pain of the loss will feel unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief.

Thinking of you with sympathy and understanding that words can only try to express. I am so sorry for your loss. I still have very fond memories of a cocktail party that Ben and Sandy hosted on the beach decades ago. She will be missed.

My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. May you find a measure of comfort in God's promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where we look forward to a time when there will be no more pain and death any more. 


I was very sorry to hear of Sandy's passing. She was a joy to work with through the years at the VEC. May God continue to bless and strengthen the family during their bereavement and always. My deepest sympathy.

I was so saddened by reading of Sandy's passing. I have such pleasant memories of Sandy and Ben back in the '90's at Richmond Seminole Club meetings and events. As a fellow 'Nole "68, I just wanted to convey my condolences to the family for their loss. I'm sure they are very missed. May God bless all.

The world has lost a very special woman, but heaven has gained a new Angel! I will treasure the memories of my VEC career with Sandy serving over the years as a valued supervisor, a trusted advisor, and a fellow college football fanatic! She and Ben were both very special people to me. My thoughts and prayers go out to Anne and Susan, and the whole family. She was one of a kind, and she will be greatly missed!
