Sandy was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2002. He was a vivacious man who had golden hands when it came to working with glass. Sandy was a glazier for many years who took tremendous pride in his craft. He loved sports and knew how to enjoy life. Sandy always had a twinkle in his azure eyes and a glistening smile. People were always drawn to him because of his kind ways. As the disease progressed, Linda, Bradley and Robert were determined to keep him at home as his caregivers did their best to enrich his life.
