Sandie, you’ve left us one day before we could say “happy birthday “. Somehow it seems very fitting for you to go on to rest in the arms of your “Beloved Lord and Saviour”on that day. Have a rest-filled time in your new abode, and gently smile upon us in your usual way. I have loved you from the first when you welcomed me, the new social worker at the Tidewater clinic. We were close then. You were so helpful to me always, showing me around the maze of paperwork I had to deal with. No one was faster than you at typing those lab labels. I was awed by your speed and efficiency when I spent time with you back there in that big office of yours. I enjoyed our lunches… You always ordered the kid’s meal ! Oh, how I remember. Although I could not be withyou as much as I wanted to during your time of difficult journey, we knew that our bond would endure. Now, I’ll be able to speak to you, feel and see you any time you come across my heart and mind because time and space no longer separate us, my sweet, brave, gentle and strong sister. I love you. Rest in Peace

I love you sis and will miss you. You truly are a beautiful woman- inside and out. And a godly example to all of us. you are always giving of yourself to others and to the kingdom of God. you have been an inspiration to so many; you have added to and strength into my life. Through all of your pain and suffering I never heard a negative word or witnessed a bad attitude. Good days and bad days you were always positive always displaying the kindness and love of God. One thing that really stood out to me that I love so much about you is the importance you put on family. When I look at you and yours the word family rings strong. And even though you have gone on to be with the Lord your beauty and love for family carries on here in and through your children and grandchildren. I so enjoyed the time I was able to spend with you. My regret is that I did not spend enough time. On a lighter note half-n-half will no longer just be the white stuff I put in my coffee

To the Smith family,
James & I are praying for you guys – we were sad to hear that Sandie left to walk with Him but we know that she is finally healed. She truly had a servant’s heart & we will always remember how much she gave of herself. I’ll never forget being pregnant together & delivering within hours of each other just a couple rooms down. We have many memories and her giving spirit/character lives on in those of us whose lives she touched.
We are sorry that we can’t make it to the service but will be with you in spirit.
Lots of love & prayers,
James & Shelley Kasten

I have so many wonderful memories with Sandie. She was so amazing in so many ways. I remember when I took her to the hospital in Richmond, all the staff…from nurses to the person who pushed the snack cart around…smiled when they saw her, stopped what they were doing, and came over to give her a hug. She was loved by EVERYONE who met her. Easy to see why. With that big smile and unfailing positive attitude, what was not to love? Another time I took her to chemo here in Norfolk, and it was the same thing. Every member of staff just adored Sandie. How blessed we all are to have had a chance to know her, to be inspired by her, and to be reminded by her what faith, hope, and love look like. We’ll see you again, Sandie.

Our deepest sympathy to the Smith family. I knew Sandie Smith as Sis. Smith, a godly woman of faith. Sis. Smith always had a smile on her faces and anytime I was near her she would always, always make sure to not just greet me but ask how I was doing. Both her and her husband were, to me, the symbol of service to the house of the Lord. I would see her in the church kitchen with her husband helping with the SNAC bar at NAC. During service I remember seeing out in the altar praying for kids and others, again a godly servant unto the Lord. Sis. Smith you will be missed, but we are comforted that you are in the arms of Jesus! We pray for God’s peace for Bro. Smith, Tina, Steven, Marie, and the rest of the family. We love you all!

Tim from the time you all lived on Lester Ave and I use to pick Marie up for school and when I use to take Sandie to work at Little Ceasers she has always been the same humble person. She was always saying something that would make you laugh even when I felt down she could always make me smile. Our friendship kinda broke down for some time but I want to thank you for helping us rekindle it. I thank you for allowing me to help you out by taking and picking her up from her appointments no matter what she was going through she never complained about any of it she did what she knew needed to be done she was more worried about making me late for picking Robbin up from school then worrying about herself and her being tired. Every one and everything always came before herself. She was one of a kind. I will miss our talks and laughs together but I will always hold on to the memories. Forever in my thoughts. Love you my friend.
