Condolence & Memory Journal

To all who loved and benefitted from the grace of Mr. Sanford. I feel so blessed to have known Mr. and Mrs. Sanford, in all their kindness to everyone and wholesome good-natured ways. The world was made a better place by their presence and their actions. I will always remember how nice Mr. Sanford was to every single person in the room, and how much he was respected for his self-reliance and resilience and accomplishments. I enjoyed his great sense of humor and am grateful for the times that I was able to enjoy his company in the home of his daughter Kathy Thomas and her family. I am lighting a candle tonight in memory of Mr. Sanford and his beloved wife. May God bless them in heaven, for everything they gave us in this world.
