  12. Sending heartfelt condolences to you, Carl, and to your family at the recent loss of Sandy. We first met Sandy when we visited your home in Texas. She was the perfect hostess and we found her kind, fun and easy to talk with. We got to see her again when she was the main organizer of the reunion of Catkillers. Again, we were so very impressed with her energy and how well she had things organized. Then there were the trips to the Key West boat races….always fun and unforgettable. We will miss her, Carl. We know this is such a devastating time for you and your family….we are so very sorry. Sending love, hugs and prayers to you and your family. God bless you all.
