    My heart goes out to your family. Having lost my husband to cancer over 3 years ago, I can identify with your feelings.
    Sandy was a high school and family friend. We shared some great time at that time in our lives.
    My deepest sympathy to you all.

    Sandra and I were good friends in High School, we played on the class touch football team and we were each aggressive girls, we played to win. I am a cancer survivor myself and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, her family.

    Mrs. Sandy was my Kindergarten teacher at Nannie Berry. She is one of the few teachers throughout my life that I remember as being caring and compassionate towards her students. I saw her through my years growing up at either church or school functions since Carrie and I graduated together. Of course Mrs Sandy remembered me as she did with everyone she touched through out her life as a teacher. The Venable family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Mrs Sandy will be deeply missed.

    I went to Humboldt High School with Sandra, whom I remember as a sweet, sweet girl.

    Mike, Rick and I just saw that sweet Sandy had passed away in the MTSU magazine. We were so surprised and saddened. I can ‘t tell you how many times you both come up in conversation and fun memories of our “early adult” years. I remember the day you were married and drove away in the orange Z ! Please accept our condolences
    Sincerely,
    Cathy Chavis.

    Sandy was my kindergarten teacher. When I went on to first grade and I was struggling with math she would come to my house and tutor me. She really believed I could do it, despite my learning disabilities. Without her, a rough beginning in education May have ended abruptly. In some way, I can’t help but think the completion of graduate school started when she genuinely cared. Thank you, Mrs. Venable. Your name will live on.
