Perez in San Juan. She graduated and had formerly lived in Edinburg for many years. Eleven years ago when Sandra met Ruben Lara Jr. it was love at first sight. After only a few dates they knew they had found their soulmate.
Sandra worked for The Monitor as a Regional Marketing Strategist for the rest of her career. She was a genuine person and anyone who knew her could testify to her willingness to always being helpful and generous. She was a dedicated employee and rarely missed work but always found time for friends and family. She loved her job and her community in which she served the media world.
