Sandy has been very sick and in a hospital in Pittsburgh.  Just yesterday several classmates were talking about her and prayers being said for her. I had a phone call from a classmate and saw on Facebook that Sandy passed away last night. Please pray for Jack and her family.  I will post the obituary when it appears in the Mirror.
