To my Aunt Sandy, I love you more than most people will ever know. While growing up, my mother worked her butt off to allow me to play sports, drum lessons, guitar lessons etc. you name it . She was amazing! As a grown man now,with two kids and divorced I can only imagine the struggles that she went through to make that happen. My mom and my aunt were so alike in so many ways, they always did whatever they could do for Bryan and I! When I was around 10 or 11 years old aunt Sandy asked my mom if I could go to Walt Disney World with them, of course my mom said yes. we hopped in her little Toyota Tercell which was about the size of a Yugo and headed to Flordia. I will never forget the first time I saw Disney World. After that, every year she took me with Bryan. We always had such a great time, one time in St. Pete/treasure island she thought the dolphins in the ocean were sharks, if any of you truly know my aunt you can only imagine the scene that she caused, the beach was completely evacuated, Motley Crue was filming a video on the roof of the Don Cesar hotel, I think they even had to stop filming there also. LOL I always enjoyed the time that I got to spend with her and Bryan, but I always missed my mom being there, so one year she insisted that my mom go, she said no she couldn't afford it, and my aunt said "dammit Mary Ann you're going to Florida with us if I have to pay your way. I remember being in the other room and listening to them argue to each other about it, and my aunt said " Mary Ann, you are my sister and I know you're stubborn but I will not take no for an answer. You work your ass off and you deserve it. They hugged and cried and that next morning my mom told me that we were all going to Florida together. That was the best vacation of my entire life . It's stands so true what was said today, she truly would've given the shirt off her back to anyone that she loved. She always gave me great advice and she always loved me unconditionally. I miss your laugh I miss her smile I miss all the birthday cakes that she used to bake me, I remember one year on my birthday she made a cake for me and cracked the eggs and two yolks came out, apparently that's good luck so off to bingo we went on my birthday. We didn't win that night, but it wasn't till years later that I realized the luck. The lucky part was is that I had a loving Aunt that cared about me as if I was her own son. growing up without a father I was always bitter and angry, she would always counsel me and give me great advice on how to channel my anger or frustration's. In the past 10 years I had two kids of my own and a busy life, and became some what distant, I so wish I would've taken more time to let her know how I felt about her and what an important influence she was on me becoming the man that I am today. Aunt Sandy i'm so sorry I couldn't get up in front of everybody and speak today, I gave all I had to just be able to sit there. My heart is so broken right now. I hope you and mom have fun up there, and please look down on us all and protect us. Bryan and Mike I love you guys like your my brothers.

Sandy was a great neighbor. Always had a sweet smile and when she talked about her son, Bryan, her eyes would light up! I wanted to come to the service but thought it would be better to stay home to watch over the house during this time.

Sandy was my Aunt (my dad's big sister). I have very fond memories of going to her house every Christmas for a big Italian buffet style lunch and family reunion. Some of my favorite childhood memories are being over there with her, Bryan, all of my cousins, aunts and uncles. The food she cooked was phenomenal! Nobody's lasagna, meatballs and desserts were half as good as Sandy's. I later learned from Bryan that she prepped for that big day like a week in advance getting all the desserts and food ready. I never realized as a kid how much work she put into it. Sandy loved and doted on her only child Bryan, and I could see she loved him very much. His baby pics were all over her walls. She always dressed him in the best name brand clothes, and he had all the latest toys and electronics. Bryan was a blessed kid to a very loving mom.

Bryan, I never met your mother other than through you posting on FB. She had a beautiful smile and you could tell by your pictures with her that you were her "lil boy" who she adored. And the smile you would carry when you would take a picture with her....PRICELESS. Enjoy those beautiful memories, I know you made her very proud to call you, her SON. Love ya!! Debbie and Wes Brown
