    My Condolences. Sandra was a very special person. I missed her when she left the City of Springfield, Licensing Dept., and I often wondered how she was doing.

    Sandra, what can I say about her other than she was and is the best this world had to offer. When Sandra entered my life many, many years ago it was never the same it only got better. The understanding and compassion she showed to everyone will be greatly missed. I love her with all my heart. Sandra and Tyrone are soul mates and I loved seeing how they grew as individuals and as a couple. My heart and love go out to you and her family.

    I will miss Sandra (Lisa Marie), and never forget her. How could I, it is a very rare thing in my experience to find a woman of such beauty, sweetness of spirit, and kindness of heart. To all of you to whom Sandra’s life was much more intertwined, my most heartfelt condolences.

    I’ve known Sandra for over 30 yrs. We became friends our freshman year at Hillcrest. We did EVERYTHING together. She was one of the best friends a teen could have in high school.

    I went into the Marine Corps and she stayed in Springfield. We spoke off and on through the years as I moved from place to place with my family. When I came back to MO in 2003, she was one of the first people I searched for on that Classmates website (back in the day). I was upset to hear that she was dealing with an illness. As most know, life gets you caught up and daily events leave little room for socializing. I wish I could’ve had more time, but that wasn’t the plan.

    I will miss not knowing she’s still living this life as we know it, but I know there’s no pain; no suffering left for her in this place. Her youth and beauty will be missed, but her friendship even over miles will missed the most. My heart and prayers go out to Tyrone, Virginia, Glen and Marc. Blessings to you all.

    To know Sandra, was to love Sandra! A good person inside & out. Never let life get her down, forever positive. Tyrone & Sandra made the perfect match. He loved her like no one could love her & she did the same for him. She will truly be missed!

    Sandra was a sweet, fun and beautiful person who always has a ready smile and an infectious laugh. She will be greatly missed.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    Tyrone…We are so very sorry for your loss. Sandra was an absolutely beautiful, sweet, loving person and she will truly be missed. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day. Please know that we are here for you anytime. We love you. Heaven gained a beautiful angel.

    Sandra was one of a kind there was nothing she wouldn’t do for anyone that knew her. I have been blessed to have had her in my life. We had so many memories of riding in the yellow Aries, going out of town together and us living together and her cooking my favorite dish(pork chops) and the many laughs at 3803. She and Tyrone had a love for each other that others wished they had. They lived for each other, words cannot express the loss I feel today for my nephew and our family.

    If I had one word that comes to mind when I think of Sandra, it’s Classy. She is one of a kind and I’ve never known another lady who gleams with such confidence, beauty and class.
    The friendship that Tyrone and she shared was undeniable and I think that everyone longs for a companionship that the two of them shared.
    Love you guys.

    I’m sorry I didn’t know Sandra well, but I have know you (Tyrone) since grade school and I am so sorry about your loss. You are in my prayers.

    She may have looked like Priscilla and Lisa Marie, but she was far more special. Sandra was pretty, sweet, smart, and funny. I will never forget her smiling, zooming up on her scooter (I thought she was going to run us over) to greet us on the cruise. I wish we had many more cruises to take together. My deepest sympathy to Tyrone, Barbara, and all of Sandra’s family and friends. May your memories of Sandra comfort you in the days ahead.

  18. Marc Thompson on September 25, 2015 at 9:29 am

    Tyrone and I have read and have been moved by all the comments and memories shared by everyone. It is much appreciated and helps in this difficult time. Thank you all.

  19. Brenna Pratt on September 25, 2015 at 12:23 pm

    Tyrone & Family,

    May there be comfort in knowing that someone so special will never be forgotten.
    May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead. God will provide you enough strength and determination to get through these difficult times, just know that you are our thoughts and prayers.

    My wonderful daughter-in-law, we are all suffering from the agony of losing you. How fortunate we were to have you in our family. You brought joy, happiness, fun, and laughter. We all loved you. Without love there would be no grief. The happy memories we have are worth our current pain. Gone too soon.

  21. Sandy Doran on October 22, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Tyrone, family and friends…

    I am so sorry for your loss, I just found out this sad news tonight.

    I can’t find words …

    “There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”
    ~ Washington Irving

    Love, Sandy
