Sandra was a tremendous asset to our family. Her tremendous insight and remarkable empathy were appreciated and admired. She was a very lovely human being whose intelligence mattered. She often spoke very lovingly of her family and modelled her sweet marriage for others to learn from. She was a bright star who will be missed. Our deepest condolences to her husband, her children and her grandchildren, we know she loved you all with great passion.

Dear Bill. Our condolences to you and your family. Our fond memories of you and Sandy go back to the years when we worked with Sandy in the Crisis Clinic at the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital. We shared our work, raising our children, and of course so many fun times. All our best … Lynda Burke and John Voss.

From: Patricia Fluelling
Relation: My husband Jim and I were close friends of Sandy & Bill Miller while living in Owen Sound & Kitchener, Ontario.

My deepest sympathy to Bill, Scott, Denise, Jeff, grandsons Hunter & Blake. I know that Sandy was the organizer and the center of the Miller world. She was always bubbly, smiling and looked at the positive side of life. I can still hear her laugh in my memories of our (Jim’s & mine) New Years Eve dinners together with Bill & Sandy. We used to try out all the new games our children would receive from Santa. I am sorry we lost touch when you moved west to be with your sons & their family. Bill, I know how lonely it is to be without your partner…..Sandy was & always be the light of your life. Please contact me Bill, I would love to talk to you my cell: 519-998-1013. Patricia Fluelling
