Sandy enjoyed her friends and loved to play a good hand of cards at the casino where she didn't know a stranger. The memories of family vacations was the highlight of her life. Sandy's favorite saying during her illness was, "I'm not doing that." We all had a good laugh with her about that.
Those left to cherish her memory include her two sons, Jeffrey Straight of Trussville, AL and Mitchell (Tammy) Straight of Kansas City, MO. She had three grandchildren she cherished and couldn't be prouder of; two granddaughters, Riley and Ryan; a grandson, Ethan and two dogs - Hank and Zeke.
