A quote found by her family that she had written; "The best way to be missed when you're gone, is to stand for something while you're here. The flowers of all tomorrows are the seeds of today, gardening is a way of showing you believe in tomorrow. Friends are the flowers in a life's garden. No two gardens are the same or no two days are the same, as friends" In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Sandra's memory to The Almanzo Wilder Homestead located in Burke NY or Shriner's Hospital To the caring and compassionate ICU staff and her doctor at Alice Hyde Memorial Hospital.
