We were honored to call Sandra “Grammee” Eddy a PLANista and we are still completely heartbroken by her unexpected death this past weekend.
You have probably met Sandy; at one of our sign in tables, lobbying with us in Carson City, at a rally or a march, at a volunteer meeting, saw her picture on our facebook page, or you were one of the many guests at her 65th birthday party at the PLAN office in February. The Blue Nevadan provides an excellent account of Sandy’s remarkable life.
Sandy was an active volunteer and board member for many organizations, including Board President for the Nevada AIDS Project. She leaves behind children, grandkids and great-grandkids who she cherished dearly, and spoke of often. She also leaves behind a Progressive community still reeling from this sudden loss, and determined to honor her legacy by continuing to fight for the causes she believed in most, and remembering to love one another unconditionally.
Even in death Sandy continues to be the same generous and loving person we all came to know and love. As an organ donor, she gave new life to more than 100 people. On Saturday September 27th a celebration of her life is planned in Las Vegas. The time will be 5:30pm, but the location is still to be determined. If you would like an update, just reply to this email.
Finally, Sandy gave so much to PLAN, through donations, unwavering support, and countless hours of volunteering. Please help us give back to her by helping her family cover final medical costs by making a donation here: Sandra Eddy memorial fund. If you are not able to give, please considering sharing the link with your personal networks so others can contribute.
Rest in power Sandy. We miss you, and will always love you.
