We met Sandye & Chris about 25 years ago when I surprised my wife with a stay at their Bed & Breakfast! Each time we returned Sandye was there welcoming us in and making us feel comfortable. Her warmth was palpable! We quickly grew to love her and Chris. We are very sorry to learn of her untimely passing. May she rest in peace and God comfort her family.
