We have lost a ray of sunshine and the world has lost an exceptional expert on Cadmium. She especially enjoyed collaborating on Cadmium research with Dr. Richard K Miller and colleagues at the School of Medicine and Dentistry in Rochester NY. She really appreciated the support of friends like Evie Pappas and Connie Bird who helped her continue seeing patients. The last joys she had to give up were helping her patients and being able to read with her granddaughter. Take two minutes of quiet and see if you can remember a story you could share about Dr. Sandy. You may email condolences to the family at www.davismemorialchapel.net “I think of the Dalai Lama as a doctor of the mind offering medicine and specific counsel and cures in the way a great doctor would.” Pico Iyer A service of memory will be held at First Community Church in Grandview OH at 11am Saturday March 30, 2019. In the beginning of time, the skies were filled with flying elephants. The stars you see at night are the unblinking eyes of sleeping elephants, who sleep with one eye open to best keep watch over us. https://gregorycolbert.com If you are unable to attend the service, the link to Ashes and Snow above may interest you.

Always try to remember her by paying it forward.
