Fellow family members, we are saddened at the loss of Aunt Sandy. I'm so sorry that we cannot be there on Monday to celebrate her life together. I have fond memories of the entire Wachter/Ross family gathering for Christmas Eves when we were younger and many more gatherings in adulthood. No matter how long between family events, Aunt Sandy was always loving and ready to talk about everything new in your life. As we all got older and started growing our own families, those large gatherings were fewer and further between. However, that bond and the unbreakable love of family will live on forever. We offer our deepest sympathies and condolences. We will miss Aunt Sandy in life, but will keep her in our hearts and keep all of those closest to her in our prayers in this difficult time. Love, Chris, Anna, and Hazel
