To the many friends of Sandy B.  This note was written by a close friend of Sandy.

"Tonight Sunday, September 28th, 2014 Sandy B passed on while attending a local meeting in Tampa.  He passed in peace and the struggle he has had in the last several years is finally over and I believe he is with his God and all of God's children in Heaven.   He had returned from the hospital this past Thursday after a 3 week stay, where he had recovered from a fall that caused pain but fortunately did not have any broken bones.  He was attending the 7:30 pm Sunday night Step meeting at Palma Ciea Presbyterian Church, where at approximately 7:40 pm while the group was reading the first two pages of Step One in the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions he leaned forward put his head on the table and went to God.   Please pray for his family and his friends but keep his spirit, his love for AA and the people who participate in the program alive.  There will be some form of AA memorial in Tampa at a time to be determined. 

God Speed Sandy, say hello to Chuck C and Bill W for us, and Peace be with you all." 

Note: A traditional AA Memorial is being planned for Saturday January 10th 2015 in Tampa.  The location and start time is to be determined.  If you are planning on attending this event you can fly into Tampa International Airport (TPA).
