Sad to see this news . I don't come here often , but often saw her posts on the Welsh thread. She was obviously very well liked here .


Diane Report 26 Jun 2013 19:00

I have been asked by 2 no longer GR member's to add here on their behalf,

Both Daphne and Jackie were 2 ladies who knew Sandie on the number's thread,
they have both asked me to send Condolences to Sandie's family and friend's.
They both had an e-mail contact with her and have said how shocked they are to hear this sad new's of some-one so liked and so young.

RIP Sandie, you will be sadly missed by both of us <3 <3 <3

What terrible and totally unexpected news. I didn't know Sandie personally but she was very welcoming to me on the Quiz Board and came over as an extremely pleasant and funny person. She will be sorely missed.

So sorry. Sometimes words just aren't enough.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 28 Jun 2013 22:16

Hello everyone...

l spoke to Sandies husband this evening, they are all still in shock as you can imagine. Sandie was only 58 yrs old,, l thought she was between 55 and 60, so young to have died.

The funeral is next Tuesday 2nd July, if you are interested in going please pm me. Sadly we can't go, we are away.
Their favoured charity is Kidney Research.
Only family flowers.

Nite nite Sandie.

I hope someone can attend Sandie's funeral to help represent all of us who got to know Sandie and will miss her contributions to the boards.

She was no age at all, and should have had many more years with her loved ones and friends.

II have not been on the boards for a few days and just seen Jude's thread.
