    Doug, Tripp, and family. I am so sadden in my heart. When Andy called to inform me about my long time friend Sandi, I near could believe the news. I don’t remember just how many years that I have known her. Doug and I go back many years, as fellow Law Enforcement brothers. Sandi was a Police Officer dispatcher for me in Fountain Inn, “the best”. I know that all that knew her will sorely miss her. She had the sweetest ,warmest smile, and was always happy to see you.
    Doug, you and Sandi were made for each other, so I know full well the void that you now have. May GOD make smooth the path before you in the days ahead. My heart and love goes out to the entire family. Your friend in Christ. Love you my long time police friend, we will all await to hear the dispatch to come an meet you once again Ray

    It’s been often over the last year that I have taken more to memories with her that pop up in photos and I think of her so much. Passing by her house recently and noticing her in the same spot she was in when I first passed by an hour or two before, worried me for one so I turned around to check and make sure she was alright, but broke my heart bc I realized how the Sandi we all knew wasn’t here anymore and she would’ve had no idea who I was if I had been able to talk with her. I’m so sorry for the hurt that y’all are having to know over losing her. Doug, Tripp, kids and family, you will be in our prayers.
    Sincerely,
    Amber Natasha,
