Very sad to hear of your loss. I remember all the good times we had with your Mom & your Dad. And you Denny & Troy as little boys !! Your Mom & I had lost touch over the years, but I hadn't forgotten you all. I didn't even know your Mom had been so ill. I hope all of you are doing well. Colleen & Cheryl also send their condolences to all of you. Our hearts & prayers are with you.

I am a first cousin to Sandra on the Speicher side.I have many good memories as children playing with her and my other cousins at our Grandpa and Grandma Speicher's home (William and Minnie). I remember with joy also the Speicher Clan getting together at Sandra's parents house in Goshen. I lived in the country, so walking around on the streets in Goshen with my cousins was great fun!! I remember Sandra as someone who greatly enjoyed life, loved her family, loved helping people, loved her relatives, enjoyed and created good laughs and humor! I remember several good times in Florida when she lived with Aunt Norma in the winter months and we visited them. I remember also times she came to our Shipshewana Indiana area with Aunt Norma and they visited all the Speicher cousins in this area. it was so good to renew our being cousins in our more mature stage of life. We are sorry for your loss and we pray that all the pleasant and good memories of her will always be a positive force in your life!
