Sandy Bruce R.I.P.

Sandy Bruce died today after fighting for over a year with cancer. She leaves behind two children (Robert and Leslie), her life partner (Eric), a granddaughter (Sarah), three sisters (Debra, Sherry, and Lisa), her parents (Doris and David Jones), and her two nephews (Derek and Michael).

Sandy was a fighter to the last. She took what life had to throw at her, and refused to give in. She worked tirelessly as a nurse in the small, remote British Columbian town of 100 Mile House. She was there for her family through thick and thin. She enjoyed the beauty of the British Columbian forests, lakes, rivers, and fields. She skiied, hiked, biked, canoed, swam, and lived life to its fullest.

She died seven minutes after midnight, January 7, 2004. She lasted seven minutes past the stroke of midnight, avoiding dying on her son Robert's 25th birthday. She went peacefully, with a smile. She will be dearly missed. May she rest in peace.
