    We're deeply saddened at our loss of Aunt Sandy and wish we could be at her Memorial service today. She was a "larger than life" personality that was a defining trait of her place in the Syster family. We fondly recall family gatherings where opinions and laughter fllowed as freely as our Uncles cocktails. We treasured her warm embrace at our too infrequent meetings and her ability to reconnect instantly. Uncle Bob and cousins Bob, Jeannie, and Jennifer our condolences on your loss.
