  2. Aunt Sandra was a wonderful person with a wonderful heart. She was at one time in my life, my Aunt Sandra and also my Godmother. Even though she hasn’t been my Aunt in a very long time, I still call her that and she always held a special place in my heart and always will. Someday I will see her again in heaven. I have so many great memories of spending time with her, my Uncle, and my cousins in our younger growing up days. Heaven gained another amazing person! Much Love, Diana Falks Everett Garland

  4. Michael, Yelena and Alexander,

    Sorry for your loss and that I had lost touch with your Mom. We had many hours visiting together on my porch when she lived near.. We had a lot in common being the same age and growing up in Galveston County. Our favorite topic of conversation was the theory of “Six Degrees of Seperation”

    God bless you all and my His holy angels comfort you at this difficult time.
