Sandy Hughes RIP

Our friend Sandy died today and we want to express our deep sympathy to her family.

We are honoring her memory with a picture of the American flag for two reasons.  Sandy expressly never wanted her picture on the Internet and Sandy was a true patriot.

My memory of 911 starts with Sandy running up into the hallway to tell us that something was going on in NYC.  We turned on the radio and all huddled in the hallway together listening as history was made.

The event inspired Sandy to paint three American flags on a white wall facing Route 711 North.  When we finally retired our 911 flag, Sandy is the one who took it into her care.

Sandy was a good friend to many, a loving mother and wife, a huge fan of Chris Daugherty and good fun.  She will be missed.
