“At Ukiah High School I played volleyball and badmitten with Sandi--she was a gifted athlete and had the kind of spirit and smile that could make any game fun. Sandi may have been the first black woman I really interacted with--this was a gift Jim Jones brought to the Ukiah area. What sadness he removed it as well. ” - Cathy Harris

“Saw footage of you speaking to reporters with your Mom and family..You always touched my soul..Such a beautiful young woman..RIP Queen. Forever young” - Eric C.
