This summer while spending time helping my parents out, (Bob & Ruth Martin) your mom Sandy Sowers ministered to our hearts through a tape she had made a while back, of her singing songs from her heart! She sure touched many lives with her love for the Lord! We look forward to seeing her in Heaven one day. Prayers for comfort and peace to you Mike, Laura & Phil and your families.
Work connected us but friendship brought us together stretching across the miles from Texas to Virginia. I never knew her face, but I knew her smile. With each new day may peace find a place in your heart. With deepest sympathy and prayers.
My sincere sympathies to Mike, Philip, Laura and family members. Like many I have fond memories of her singing in church, counting the offering with her and Anna, enjoying church picnics , etc. just saw her briefly last year at Philip and Lorie`s house. God called her too soon by our calendar.
My deepest sympathies to the Sowers family. I will miss you my friend.

To Mike and Laura whom I only knew briefly.. I was shocked by the news of Sandy`s sudden death. I missed seeing you both at Golden Living when you came to collect her things. I wanted to send my deepest sympathy to you and let you know I have been thinking of you so much. Although brief.. The time spent with all three of you was poignant and I was so touched by the love you had for your beloved Sandy. Love and light to you on your journey through grief.
