What a beautiful person. Sandy and I worked together in the meat department at Fresh Market in Sandy, Utah. She was immediately one of my favorite people there. We made chicken kabobs together, and laughed at dumb jokes. Like when I had to toss some bad seafood, I made the fishies talk by moving their mouths with my hands, and she just thought it was hilarious. Even when I moved on to another job, she still reached out to me often to see how I was doing, despite everything she was going through. She also knew about the tragedy I went through losing my mother, and she empathized completely. She was so eager to take me under her wing. She also thought I was super cool for riding a motorcycle. Haha. I will miss her very much.

I first met the Savage family back in 1965 when we all lived out in Rosepark I beleave.then a year latter my family moved east to Millcreek and so did the Savage family

As a little kid Sandy had the hots for me but I didn't like girls at that young of an age of 10 years old. I lost touch with her for about44 plus years. A few years ago I meet up with her and had lunch a few times at McDonald's in W.Jordan and talked about what we have done in our lives.yes Sandy is a Super nice lady and she'll be mist by everyone that she came in contact.R.I.P My dear friend.

Sorry my post wrote words that I didn’t type… it said sin instead of pain and hat instead of what. Sandra was very used to my typos . We landed a vacation to lake Powell I will still try to do it’s some point and celebrate her while there.

Sandra Was one of my few true friends . Years went by and when we once reconnected it was like no time had passed. My heart is very sad for the lost for her lifetime (stud she always called him) friend and husband. He loved and loves her so deeply and took such care of her always. I know for her she can finally relax and have no sin or stress.. she loves all her children and grandchildren more than one would think possible. She is now beside her son Jesse hat a reunion that is and with her Lord. You will be missed my friend…. Love and HUGGZZ

Sandy was a prime example of a great friend and neighbor. She put 110% into everything she did. She loved her family fiercely. Our children grew up together and she loved them all, like her own. The passing of a loved one is so bitter, yet sweet. Our condolences to Jeff, Sarah, Amber and grandchildren. We are grateful to have been your neighbor and always your friend.
