    Sandy was certainly one of a kind. Quiet and soft spoken at times and quite the opposite when her Vikings were playing.
    We have enjoyed the many, many hours spent together either on vacation or in the motorhome but most especially up North at the lake relaxing and laughing
    ourselves sick! Sandy, Mary Ann and I would tell old stories of our nursing days and they were always just as funny as the fisrt time we heard them.
    Sandy was our dear, dear friend and we loved her so much. She will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you all.
    Love, Sherry and Larry

    Dear Sipe Family,
    We are in Arizona visiting our daughter and son-in-law, and trying to get away from the snow and cold. We are so sorry to hear of Sandy’s death, and would be there to support you, if we were in Minnesota. Sandy registered Dave when he had surgery at Mercy and they talked about old times and relatives. Such a pleasant and professional person. You have our deepest sympathy.
    Dave and Jeannie Dixon
