As one of her last wishes, she humbly requests friends and family help replenish her children’s education fund instead of sending flowers. In honor of her living memory and in our utmost respect for her and her wishes, we are setting up this fund for her three bright and brave daughters.
She has always been a Giver.
It isn’t difficult for any of us to envision Dr. Sandercock with one foot in heaven and a hand raised in praise, and with the other hand, holding on to ensure her children are okay. She has always been very quiet about her private life, but anyone in her presence knows Dr. Sandercock is a woman of unflinching faith, a woman who fiercely loves her family and is deeply concerned with others before herself.
Dr. Sandercock is the rare person who truly personifies dignity and character. In appearance, she is a simple woman who is completely unaware of her own disarming beauty, yet she easily finds beauty in everyone else. As a physician, she is brilliantly, seemingly divinely, skilled and genuine in her concern, practicing with great caution and even greater humility. As a friend, she has laughed with us, has celebrated with us, has cried with us, has prayed for us and with us, has protected us, and has pulled us (sometimes kicking and screaming) to get us on the right path (sometimes, repeatedly).
It is said that in our final days, as ego releases any remaining grip, we become open and crystal clear on what we need to peacefully let go. We know it is with great humility Dr. Sandercock makes this request.
With love and gratitude - Allison, Annette, Lisa, Yvette, Brenda, Anita, Tina and Bob
