Goodbye Mandy

Being an obsessive gardener for many years, I get very attached to some of my favorite nursery workers. The ones who phone to tell when something cool arrives or lend a helping hand as I'm dragging large trees and shrubs to the till. Today as I was reading the obituary section, I learned that dear Mandy had passed away on her way on holidays. A fluke tragic car accident. I am going to miss her. Rest in peace buddy!

Sandy, I'm still shocked into silence. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mandy's family. I'll miss her as wish her god speed.

Oh that is so sad!
Even though she wasn't family, she treated you like family by telling you about the nursery goodies. You'll never forget people like that.

I was so bummed out today I actually went back to bed this morning after driving my son to school. I never do that. Life sucks sometimes.

Maybe in the spring you can plant something, a tree perhaps, in Mandy's memory.

Oh My God Sandy,
Was it Mandy that worked up on Dogwood at the new Mystic Woods offshoot. She had at least one daughter in college. If so we played soccer together for several years.

So sad Sandy,

She was really such a nice person, and a really good mom! I'll be sure to say a prayer for her and her family!
