As I was made aware of Sandy's passing, I reflected back on our days at KHS and I thought about her laugh.  For some reason when I looked at her picture that is what struck me.  I can just see her beginning to laugh and her big, happy, smile.  What a terrible shock for all of her friends and loved ones to lose Sandy at this time of her life.  Well, rest in peace lovely girl, you will be missed.
