Farewell to our dear friend Sandy Wyant...

I have a heavy heart this morning my friends as I share this information with you...Our sweet friend and long time customer, Sandy Wyant, has passed away. Myself , Kristyn, Elaine, Susan, Rhonda, and Lynette had come to know and love Sandy and she will be dearly missed. 

As for me, I will miss her always popping in to say hi, creating with us in class, seeing how crafting made her feel so happy and good about herself, and I will especially miss her smiling face and wonderful laugh. It's hard to understand the timing of life but I choose to trust in God's timing and his perfect plan for her life. 

Her family has arranged a Celebration of Sandy's Life which will be held this Friday, Oct. 26th from 4pm-5pm. This Celebration will be held at the Holiday Inn Express located at 1111 W. Lancaster Ave. Ft. Worth, TX 76102.  The family has asked that you not send flowers, rather make donations to the Humane Society in Sandy's name. She was a great advocate of animals and had a special love for all of her pets. 

Please cover Sandy's family and her close knit crafting friends in prayer as this will be such a difficult time for them. She will be missed greatly and I am very thankful that our lives were so very blessed by knowing her and calling her our friend. We will never forget the time we have shared together. 

We love you Sandy!
Miss Tracy,
Elaine, Kristyn, Susan, Rhonda, Lynette
