I'm so sorry for your great loss. Mr. Sandlin was a wonderful and fun teacher with a great big genuinely kind heart. My sister and I were able to become life-guards due to his hard work as a teacher, which ended up helping me get through college! There's so much more to be said, but I'll leave it at: I'm so grateful for his generous spirit and hard work. He made a hugely positive difference in the lives of his students and all who met him.
