  3. Sandy and her family were the first people we met when we moved to Meriden, CT in 1986. My oldest, Mary, was almost a year old when we moved in. Sandy brought the kids over across the street to say hello. Andrew was 1, and Sara was 3. We had a playgroup in the neighborhood that met every Friday morning. What fun we had! I will miss you, Sandy!! Love, Marti, Don, Mary, Ben, and Jennifer Kimball
