I am so sorry, I just found out about Sandy's passing. We were room-mates at Centenary.

My Centenary College Choir days covered the years 1963 - '67. I was blessed to be a part of the choir for a couple of years that Sandy served as our accompanist. He had an amazing gift; every time he sat down at the keyboard, you knew your were going to hear something special. He was especially helpful to me in my development as a singer. We regret that we did not hear about his passing until today. I would have been there. May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ continue to sustain you and fill you.

I went to Centenary with Sand; was in the choir when he was the accompanist. He played at our wedding, and we saw him in Houston an Kansas City in the plays. He came to Shreveport for both of our girls' weddings. He was a special friend, and we will miss him. We missed his celebration because we were out-of-town. I'm so sorry we couldn't tell the family how much we will miss him. James and Jean

Sand was such a talented musician! Our church lost a lot of its spark when he quit playing for us. He was a super nice person, too. John and I will truly miss him.

I was one of Sandy's classmates during our eighth, ninth, and tenth grades at West Monroe High School. Other of his childhood friends and I remember him well as a kind young man and incredibly talented pianist. We are all greatly saddened by his passing.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I had never met the gentleman. I only knew of him through his friendship with Bud Clark.

I did not know any of Sandy's family members but do wish to extend my condolences to Bud. Losing a close friend is very difficult. The only consolation is knowing that he is in a better place now, with our Lord and Savior. Take care, Bud

Our time with Sandy was childhood through high school when he was admired as the musical child prodigy. Everyone loved Sandy, not only because of his amazing talent, but because he was a dear friend to all of us and a big part of our lives at First Baptist. We'll never forget the school bus church trip to Glorieta with all the luggage stacked up in the back of the bus. When the driver threw on the brakes the luggage tumbled onto someone in the back row seats. Gasping, afraid that someone was hurt, we all breathed a sigh of relief and had a good laugh when that little Sandy - headed boy popped out from under the pile of suitcases dazed and confused, but with a big smile! We'll miss you Sand.

Sand was one of the most charming and gracious people I've ever known. I particularly recall the great times we had with friends at the OHS convention in Saratoga Springs. He will be greatly missed. I am fortunate to have known him and enjoyed his friendship and generosity. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

I met Sand in person in 2000, in Boston, we had been chatting via the internet for a lot longer. I will always consider him one of my favorite people and a great friend. I will sorely miss him.
