Sandy enjoyed putting together picture albums of her family, bird watching, especially humming birds, collecting bird houses, decorating her home and displaying her collection of music boxes given to her by Paul. She was especially proud of her daughter and granddaughter of whom she loved and cared for with all her heart.
