    And to you Sandra as you prepare to take the journey we will all of us take someday.
    You must be a lovely person to have such a lovely blog.

  3. Mike, I’m very sorry to hear this. Sandra is such a beautiful soul and a lovely woman who has made your home and life a gracious place. I join all the others here in praying for strength and courage for you as you go through this with your beloved wife as she is close to being welcomed into her heavenly home.
    Much love to Sandra,

  4. I am so sorry to hear this Mike. Sandra brought joy to me with every blog post and facebook post. Please give her a gentle hug from me and know that both of you are in my prayers.

  5. Oh Mike, my heart breaks for you — and for all of us who have fallen in love with Sandra’s words and beautiful spirit in these past years. She brought us joy here, but she brought you joy every single day. I hope you will convey to her how much she is loved by so many and what a difference she made in our lives, certainly mine. I wish you both peace and strength and remember, you don’t have to walk this journey alone. There is a world of friends who are wrapping their arms and hearts around you both right now.

  6. Mike, I will keep both Sandra and you in my thoughts and prayers. Sandra has a special gift that has touched us all with her beautiful words and sentiments. Often, they have brought me peace and joy during turbulent times. Through her blog, she has taught me to enjoy every season and moment of life. I am sending love and hugs to dear Sandra and will be praying that God grants you both strength and peace.

  7. Mike, Sandra and I became friends when my family and I moved back her in 1963. I knew no one, she was my neighbor and we were in youth group and youth choir at the First Presbyterian Church. My father was dying and she supported me through that. She walked in the doors of central with me my first day. We watched The Beatles on the “Ed Sullivan Show” for the first time in my living room…screaming!!! My parents were at a loss! 😊 We went Christmas Caroling on a below zero night, and no one came to their doors, because they couldn’t hear us! And we made a “haunted house” in her backyard, under her Mama’s grape arbors. So many memories! And then reconnecting when you all moved back here….my granddaughter. Bella, will never forget our little luncheon at your home, and the beautiful bouquet of Peonies she came home with… she is loved by me. Maybe she will get a laugh out of these memories… there are so many more. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Just be together, and soak it all in. Your friend, Becky Rogers

  8. Oh, Mike, my heart is breaking for you. Sandra has filled my days with beautiful posts that kept me uplifted all during Covid, and she’s been my rock whenever I needed gardening advice. You and Sandra are in my heart and in my prayers. Sending love to you both.

    Sandra’s admirer,

  9. Mike, with tears streaming down my face, I am sad Sandra’s time to leave this earth has come. But, it is not the end but only the beginning of her eternal home. Scripture tells us that being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Revelation 21:4 says” He will wipe every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.” It is comforting to know Sandra will not be suffering anymore but will enjoy the glory of heaven.

  10. Mike, imagine my shock when I logged on to discover that Sandra is very ill. Somehow, it has always seemed that I would leave this earth before any of the other members of this generation of Fears descendants because I am the eldest. But God has plans of his own. I am now 77 pushing 78 so that is not a bad assumption. If it isn’t too late, please give her a warm hug for me and tell her that I love her even though we always been at least a continent apart. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. You and Sandra are both in my prayers, Love, Mary

  11. My heart is filled with such sorrow to learn this news, and I know many others feel the same. Sandra is and always will remain a beautiful light of love. She touched the hearts of so many with her beautiful blog, always filled with hope and words that brought peace. I know Sandra’s eternal home will be filled to overflowing with never ending happiness. Mike, take comfort in knowing how much you were loved and joy that you shared so many wonderful years together. Our prayers for healing are yours, Bobbi & Michael
