I'm in shock and tears are going down my face. I'd been in touch with her family, as she'd been in the hospital.

Sandy has been one of our wonderful QAV Team members since last November. Though we never met, we spoke through the forums and email.

My heart goes out to her family and all her friends.

She will be missed!

Wow, another one that leaves a gaping hole in the Poser community. I worked with her at RDNA where she headed up the QA team. Just the sweetest, most helpful person ever.

My condolences to her family.

R.I.P. Sandy!

Oh wow! SndCastie was so sweet and down to earth. She will be missed.
I've known her since I was a tester at RDNA. She was a very nice person. She tried to be there to help out friends. She was also a hard worker & did her best to treat everyone fairly. Heaven gained a sweet angel today. Sending prayers & sympathy to her friends & family.

I've also known Sandy from back in the days when we tested together untill the very last end at RDNA. We worked together for many many years. She was such a great person, always calm and very sweet.
My condolances to all of her friends & family.

She will be missed. I, too, remember her most from heading up QAV at RuntimeDNA.

I can not say I knew her well or personally - then again I can not say that of many people, as I am so reclusive and rough around the edges so few get to know me.


I was devastated to hear this. I know she's battled health issues for a long time, but even still, you don't want to hear this kind of news about a dear long time friend.
I worked with Sandy for 6 years at RDNA and she was a sweet kind soul with a heart of gold. I'm just sitting here with tears running down my cheeks and my heart is heavy. Bill, I'm sure you know how much Sandy was loved and will continue to stay in our hearts. :love:


I was so shocked to hear this news. I knew Sandy when I was a tester at RDNA, she was always very nice and helpful to me.
My thoughts and prayers to her family.
