  • Does anyone know if this is the Sandy Rydel that went to St. Hedwig’s Elementary School? If it is, please let me know. She was my very first girlfriend since the First Grade and we dated through high school.

    What a sweet, sweet girl. We had the best times at the beach, the movies and both my proms.

    God bless her and her family.
