I never imagined that over the years we would be colleagues, we would see each other almost every day in the corridors of Telemundo and we would work together, yes, because I had the pleasure of directing her in a theatrical show produced by my friend Wanda Ivette Colon together with Remy, Chícola, María Chuzema and Dagmarita and among many other things I remember spending Christmas Day in her apartment with a group of mutual friends.
Sandra had a good sense of humor and when we talked we laughed at the things that happened to her. She told me about the experience of the accident that left her confined to a wheelchair and the experience of leaving and coming back to life because it was not her time yet. We coincide in many events and already in recent years, once in a while we met there. I think the last time I saw her was in Plaza Las Américas.
Your spirit had the wonderful experience of leaving and returning to your body many years ago; Yesterday, possibly, the time to be among us to be freed from his ties, to be free and to enjoy his next life with the Heavenly Father, may have been fulfilled. See you always Sandra !!!!”, published the artist.
