    We are so sorry for the loss of your beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. Randy and I were so happy that we got to see Sandy a few weeks ago. I saw her courage and grace shine through during a tough time. I will always remember her words of encouragment for Randy in his battle with cancer. Bob, know that our thoughts are with you.

  10. To the family of Sandy,

    My name is Carrie and I am the receptionist at Wilkie Chiropractic. I used to always look forward to when Bob and Sandy would come in. They were always so friendly. Sandy would always chat with me. She would always ask me about my upcoming wedding and tell me about how hers was. 🙂 After I got married they were the first patients that I showed my wedding pictures to and they were so happy for me. She would always tell me how great marriage is. You could tell that even after all of her years of marriage she was still loved Bob very much. She had an appointment on her 80th birthday and she was so happy that I had remembered to say, “Happy Birthday.” I will really miss her coming in. She was truly a ray of sunshine. My condolences & prayers go out to
    Bob and the rest of the family during this difficult
    time. God Bless.
