The family would like to thank Texas Home Health, especially her nurses Teri and Mary; 3rd floor staff of Providence Hospital; Fresenius and the staff of Waco West Kidney Center, as well as the Nephrologists, for taking care of Sandy for so many years. She was greatly loved and will be equally missed by so many.
