I truly regret missing the funeral service for Saundra. Regrettably, I’ve been consumed with news reports of current events. My enduring memory of Saundra will be of her constant smile. Obviously she had medical struggles over a long period of time, but when she was out and about, she pushed those struggles aside and focused on lifting the spirits of others. She will be missed and the family can take solace given the proud legacy Saundra has left for all. Valerie Lee
