I worked with Sandy at Brown’s. We had so much fun! She was a great co-worker. RIP.

I am deeply sorry to the Wharton family for the loss of their mother, sister and grandmother. In our college days, I loved coming home with Stacie to Blacheyville to their home for a visit. Mrs. Wharton always had a fridge full of diet Coke, many stories to share and lots of laughter. I hope the happy memories help with difficult journey of grieving.
Much love and God Bless,
