Most of all, Sandy enjoyed spending time with her family and her faithful dogs Lily and Dominick. She loved reading crime novels and murder mysteries. As a foodie, she also had a sweet tooth like her father and enjoyed a good piece of chocolate! Sandy enjoyed camping, horseback & trail riding, and spending time with friends around a campfire in her youth. Halloween was her favorite holiday and Sandy loved her collection of decorative witches.
