Around 2:20 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2021, Mom and her cancer came to an agreement to terminate their relationship. Present to witness this final decision were her husband Ted; daughter Dawn and her husband Dennis; sons, Douglas and David; and her dear friends, Bev and Judy.
Sandra Gail, or Sandy as she was known to all, was born in Montreal on Sunday, September 20, 1942. She was the first-born of Graham and Norma and lived a remarkable life... filled with love, laughter and many friendships that lasted multiple decades.
Now that the final chapter of Mom and her times has been written, the labour of love of keeping her memory and telling her stories has been handed down to Ted; her daughter Dawn, husband Dennis and their children, Janessa and Erick; her son Doug, wife Helene and their daughters, Baylee, Lexee and Aymee; her son Dave, his wife Brenda and their sons, Zedd and Eh; and Mom's many friends.
Mom wrote this in her journal (and we've filled in the blanks)...
"It has been an interesting ride but all rides must end. After 78 years on this ball of mud, my journey ended on April 3. Now dry your eyes and when those who wish to... please join my family and friends to remember me, celebrate and raise a glass."
Mom's final years of her "journey on this ball of mud" were made possible and definitely lengthened by the tireless work, care and love from the many professionals at CancerCare Manitoba. If you so choose, a donation to this incredible collection of people would be a worthy memorial to Sandy.
In lieu of flowers, please hug someone you love; reach out to old friends and tell them why they're special to you; and whenever possible, please remember Sandy, tell her stories and keep her memory strong.
