From David Sandman

To my Michelle, My Wife, My best friend, To the Mother of my three beautiful children. You have left a void in me that cannot be filled, a piece of me that can never be replaced. You were the best part of me.
There will never be a moment while I breathe that you will not be in my thoughts. To the love of my life till we meet again! Dave

From Jennifer Sandman

What should you know about Michelle Lynn Sandman, or rather, what those who were closest to her had the priviledge to know:
My Mom loved everyone. No matter what they did to or put her through (myself included), she always had the strength to forgive that most people in the world do not. What can you say about the person that made you who you are? (Sorry Mom, not sure if that's a compliment ). My Mom taught me what it means to love your family unconditionally, what true strength is, and to never, ever give up, no matter what, for the love of life and her family. I am grateful every day for her love, comfort, and encouragement. Until her final hours, she never forgot to tell all of us she loved us. There is no woman in the world that I will admire or miss more. Until we meet again Mom, love you always, XOXO, Henny Penny

From Eric Sandman

Since I can remember, Mom has always been artistic and creative. Whether she was decorating, painting, knitting or gardening, she was always working to create something beautiful, and was always a huge inspiration for my own love of art and music. I will always be grateful for her encouragement and support at every gig, recital, or performance. She was always there to clap, cheer and nurture that same passion to create.
Eric

From Ashley Sandman

Mom, you were my rock, my friend, my everything. I love you more that I could ever express to you. You taught me how to be a good person. You've shown me the value of honesty and hard work. You taught me to be proud of myself and my accomplishments, to be confident. You have shaped every part of who I am and I couldn't have asked for a better Mom. You've shown me what love truly means. I know you are my guardian angel now. You loved us more than anything and we will love you and miss you every day. Forever your Baby, Ashley

From Kathy Riggs

To my sister, Always the "older" sister, always my friend, always someone to share a different opinion, always a smile, always an opinion, always helping. Our mutual love of Roses, ones that start as a bare root, grow many shapes and colored leaves, than small perfectly shaped buds that like life, spring forward into beautiful blossoms that change daily and please the senses with fresh fragrance and leaves an indelible memory of something beautiful that each year blooms bigger and brighter. I will miss you Sis.

From Larry Riggs

I remember spending quality time with Michelle and Dave and Kathy this last summer in Lake Tahoe, going to the top of Heavenly on the Gondolas and Chair lift. What a view. Watching Michelle and Kathy walking and talking. The dinner trip on the MS Dixie all around the lake. The Horse drawn Carriage ride around the town. Michelle having a blast at the Casino, winning at every slot machine she touched, and of course, watching Michelle doing what she loved the most, SHOPPING!! We will miss you Michelle, Larry
