SANDRA WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT. SHE LIVED LIFE TO THE FULL. HER UNWAVERING LOVE FOR THE LORD AND HER RESOLVE TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT TO THE END WILL ALWAYS SERVE AS AN ISPIRATION TO ME AND TO COUNTLESS OTHERS WHO WATCHED AS SHE KEPT HER JOY AND PEACE RIGHT TO THE END. YOU WILL BE MISSED HERE ON EARTH BUT YOU ARE HAPPY AND I AM SURE YOU ARE MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC IN HEAVEN FOR THE LORD. YOU ARE SO LOVED BY SO MANY.

You was the most important teacher in my life and I realy loved your spirit of music. I tried to contact you after 24 years ..... In 1987 you was a student in Detmold and I was living in Herford.
I will never forget you and I will always thank you.
I hope your life was full of laughing and good music.
Let´s meet again...
