  1. Pam,Anne and all my ERA Family: I knew it was going to come someday- but kept pushing it father and father away. Sandy has been like a brother/father to me. He had always been there for me, He will sure be missed. I have never met a more loving and sweet couple. While I didn’t see Sandy all the time- he was the best broker in the world. He always had my back. That is when I moved my license back to my home (admittedly too late). I know if I needed it, he would give the last nickel in his pocket. Anne- your Daddy was one of the finest southern gentleman that I ever met. I love you all.

  2. Dear Aunt Pam, Anne, Shy and Skyla,
    Words can’t express my feelings of loss with Uncle Sandy’s passing. He was so thoughtful and a wonderful host to everyone. He was absolutely a “True Southern Gentlemen”. What wonderful stories he would tell us. He was the life of all parties and usually the last one to bed! (But then usually the last to rise also!) I’ve always admired you Aunt Pam for guiding the ship and keeping Uncle Sandy on point. Anyone could see the mutual respect and love you both shared, which is hard to find for many in this day and time. Anne you were the light of his life and then came Shy and Skyla bringing him so much joy and pride. I am blessed to have had him as an Uncle, Godfather and friend. God’s peace Uncle Sandy! Love you all, Meta

  3. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. Sandy was one who enjoyed life to the fullest and was fun to be with on many occasions in past years. I will always remember our car pooling from Buford Highway to Jolly Elementary!
    Love, prayers, peace,

  4. Thinking of my precious Uncle Sandy and remembering all the hugs, smiles and positivity he shared with all who knew him. May God bless his soul and give our family the peace to get through this trying time. We know Sandy is in a better place, where there is no pain, discomfort or fear. We know his presence will live on in the lives us all. We love you Uncle Sandy, you will hold a special place in our hearts forever….Much Love, Susie, Steve, Steven Jr. & Shealyn Rodriguez

  5. Pam, Anne, Shy and Skyla,
    My condolences and prayers for the family in dealing with the days ahead. I truly cannot express how I felt when the news came that Sandy’s passed away. Although tears ran down my cheeks, I couldn’t cry. I remembered his smiling face and him saying “Darling, how are you doing? Yes, He was a “Southern Gentlemen” who made the ladies around him smile. He always showed that he cared. I will miss Him and always remember his kindness. Lots of Love….. Hugs! Marlene.

  6. Sandy was a smooth character… I can remember him pulling up to softball games in his grey Cadillac. He was always dressed sharp and would fill the office with the smell of his Cologne. He was not afraid to tell it like it is but always smooth about it. He always had great advice. When you went to the Christmas parties you knew he would be in the bar chair in the kitchen, he would tell you how good you looked and tell ya to pour a drink… whatever you wanted! He was really just an all around great guy that was super sweet. I will miss hearing his voice and him telling me my daddy would be proud. We all know he is at peace but we all also know we will never meet another Sandy Saunders and we wanted to keep him longer. Prayers to all!

  7. Dad, you never held back on your opinions, which always motivated me to want to do better. You raised me to be tough, but loving, and was always there for me, even when I was being stubborn. I love you sooo much. I will miss your hugs, your smell, your love, your midnight snack attack, your opinions, your stubbornness, your knowledge, your heart. I love you dad, I hope you are enjoying your Butter Pecan Ice Cream with Mami and Granddad, Uncle Johnny, Uncle Pete, Uncle Lou, Tracy, Carol-Gay, Tony, and all our family and friends that we have lost (please excuse me if I left out anybody’s name, there are so many). You touched so many lives and may your love and guidance live on in all of us. I love you daddy.

  8. Sandy was my friend. In fact one of my best friends. His loss is a great loss, but we are so glad he came our way. He was a friend in all seasons. He always shared his deep love for his family- his natural family and his ATO family. We love you Preacher.

  9. Alexander Sandy Saunders I went to school with Sandy and we were friends and I talked to him since He was sick, I am thinking of the family. Our Prayers and Thoughts are with you. He was a great person and friend and will always be remembered.
