    Sandy and Mike were our neighbors and friends here in Florida. Sandy taught me how to play Euchre, I was her partner and frankly not familiar with the game, she was patient up to a point, but when I made one mistake to many she said “If I am your partner You’d better go Big,or go home “ out of fear I did, and I am grateful for that. We play often and I will never forget the true friendship that they both shared with us and others . PS I’m a decent Euchre player Thankful to you Sandy
