Marlene Crep

“Oh Sandra, I am crying with joy. What an honor to have been a part of this. I will continue praying for Amanda and her family. You are an angel from God. You are on my “most admired” list.”

Bill Feinberg
Allied Kitchen & Bath

“Wow. This is such great news Sandra. You ROCK. Without you, none of this could or would be possible. The efforts you make to help others, will long live in the memory of Jessica. There’s no doubt you were a great mom to her. Receiving a letter like this one that you just sent about Amanda, is reason enough to continue the efforts that we both do to help others less fortunate. This one especially is very moving, just knowing it’s helping someone so beautiful, right here in our own back yard. Once again, great job.”
