Since the age of twelve, Sandra “Sandy” Cole has written inspirational stories and poems that have been shared with family, friends, churches, civic organizations, and state and national organizations. During her career in funeral service, Sandy wrote a biweekly column for six years in the 1990s for the local newspaper on funeral service and grief recovery.
Born and raised in the small Northern California city of Red Bluff, Sandy and her husband raised two children and were very active in the community. Sandy was a frequent speaker at private and civic organizations, covering a variety of topics. Sandy and her husband sold their business and retired from funeral service in 2000. In 2003, they moved to a small farming community in south central Oregon. Her marriage of forty-plus years ended, so Sandy now lives in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Sandy received her Reiki mastership in 2009, and practices energy healing work, is a hospice volunteer doing grief counseling, and became a minister with Light Path Resources in 2012. Her pleasure time is spent with her children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends.
