Sandy and I met through Cheryl as freshmen at UC. Oh, the fun adventures we had! We kept in touch and began our annual get-togethers reminiscing about those days, visiting new places and catching up on our activities and growing families over the previous year. She was a joy to be around and I will miss her infectious laugh. My condolences and prayers for all her family.
