    As I type this tribute to my dearest and best friend, whose family adopted me as part of their family, I can’t stop the tears from falling. Sandy and I have known each other for 17 years and we had some crazy, fun and always exciting adventures and I believe we could have put some soap operas to shame! Oh, what fun we had and we had our disagreements, but we always knew we would always be there for each other. I’ve never known anyone like Sandy and I’m so glad I was able to be a part of her life and she was a very big part of my life. I love you and miss you so much my heart breaks as I type these words to tell you good bye. You touched my life in a way noone has ever done before and taught me a lot about life. I know you’re happy now and there’s no more pain and you’re with the good Lord above and I know you’re watching over us and I hope I will get to see you again someday. Prayers in the air to Charlie and all the family in this very sad time to help us heal. I love you, my adopted sister, my friend. Now you can rest easy and please know I have always loved you and always will. Goodnight, sweet dreams, have a safe journey home and God bless. ❤

    Hello Mom
    It’s been a month since you’ve been gone. Really miss you and wish you were here so I can give you a big hug! I know you are healed in a new body and not suffering, but surely miss talking to you every morning on my way to work. I know they say things will get better as time goes on but it sure is hard when I walk out my front door and see your house. Miss you waves and yelling at me that u love me, miss that so so much. Charlie is doing good, he has his days and he looks at the picture of you and him and talks to you every day! Got to go for now mom, love you always and see you one day. Your son,
    Wayne Allred 😘💕
