  1. My deepest sympathies for this wonderful family. I have so many childhood memories with Sandy. I picture her with her wonderful smile as we silly girls put on fashion shows, road bikes and many sleep overs spent (well many evenings until I was a baby and had to picked up by my parents.) Sandy was always patient and always invited me again and again. Love to the Beecher family.

    • Thank you very much for your sympathies and memories. We looked at pictures of some of those memorable fashion shows and sleep overs when going through old albums recently.

  2. Hui Hou (til we meet again) dear friend of 42 years. We will long remember your silly humor as we struggled with the highs and lows of raising families. Now rest in Gods peace!

    • Thank you for your thoughts. We will always remember what a great friend and neighbor you were to all of us, but especially our mom.

  3. Thinking of you and your family during this time. Sending prayers
