We were so sorry to find out about Sandy's passing. We have a friend who was just diagnosed with ALS and were looking for the book Sandy wrote. This led us to finding out about Sandy.
We wish you well. May God bless and keep you.

Sandy and I were ROTC Nurse Counselors together. I remember what a great example she was, how excited she was when she met Steve. I've since retired from active duty but work at Tripler now . . . and staff here still remember her. Peace to Sandy and her family.

So sorry Steve. Take comfort in the other members of your family and your friends. Don't let depression take control. As hard as it is, ask for help. I had to when I became one of "Jerrys Kids".

I read Sandy's book and was touched and inspired. I'm also an RN with ALS. My deepest condolences to Sandy's friends and relatives.

I met Sandy in 1995 at Tripler Hospital at the Keiki Co-Op, where I was a care-giver for Nick. She would come in after a long day with the biggest smile on her face, tousle Nicks' hair, and ask me how my day was. She brought joy to everyone around her, and was sincere in everything she did. I will miss her dearly, as I miss Nick. My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve and his family.

Steve, you are a warrior, and Sandy you are his jewel. God bless you both, and Nick. Sandy and I were stationed at Tripler together, both Head Nurses of very busy places. She was a year ahead of me (so to speak), and a great inspiration. I always wanted to work with Sandy, because I knew she'd get things done (and committee meetings would end on time!). I often sought her advice. A few months after Nick was born, I

My initial introduction to Sandy was as a Speech Pathologist while I was working at the VA Medical Center in Washington, DC. She invited me to join her monthly book club, which I did, and have been a member ever since. The books she selected for the club to read were outstanding. When we met to review the book, she always had questions prepared to stimulate the discussion. She will always be an inspiration to me. I will never meet anyone more intelligent, courageous, caring, and inspirational than Sandy Stuban. I am privileged to have known her.

From the moment I met Sandy Stuban in 2011, I was inspired by her incredible strength, courage, and devotion to family and community. She was a remarkable person who left this world a better place. She will remain an inspiration to many of us, and I hope to continue her efforts to improve our public schools. Warmest sympathies to Steve and her extended family and friends who loved her so dearly.

I have known Sandy since we were both Army Nurses stationed in Augsburg, GE. We had some great times working at 34th General Hospital, traveling around Europe together and going to Egypt. When I heard Sandy had ALS, in 1995, I had been diagnosed with MS for about 2 years. I feel very blessed to have known her and to have been able to call her friend. May God rest her soul.
