Singing became not only a hobby but also a way for Shandy to express her devotion to her spirituality. The harmonies she created will indefinitely resound in the memories of those who were fortunate enough to hear them. Beyond her spiritual pursuits, Shandy found joy in indulging in another passion traveling with friends and family.
