Dear John, Margo & Families;

I Am Shocked And Very Saddened To See That Your Wife & Mother (Sandra) Has Passed Away, A Tear Came To My Eyes When I Read This. Sandra Was An Extremely Beautiful Lady Whom Was So Kind, Friendly And Intelligent. I Will Always Remember Her Coming Into Sobeys With You John To Pick Up Groceries, She Always Had Such A Nice Smile For Me And Loved To Chat. Margo When Your Father Brought Her Into The Store And Came Through Me, I Always Made Sure To Tell Your Dad To Take Her Over To Have A Coffee & A Donut Before He Took Her Home, They Both Got Quite A Chuckle Out Of That. But Your Father Always Did It And I Know He Enjoyed Every Minute Of It Too. Sandra Is Now At Peace & God Sure Has Such A Beautiful Angel. May God Bless You Both And Your Families, Sandra Was So Proud Of You All!!!
Sincerely:
Peggy Payzant (Former Sobeys Cashier)
