Last week, the Strawberry community lost our dear friend, Sandy Ashton. Sandy began volunteering on the Garbage/Recycle Crew in the early 90’s and has been a mainstay on that crew ever since. Many of us understand crew camaraderie, but the Garbage/Recycle Crew is especially tight, having camped together for many years. We know they are all feeling this loss profoundly, as are the many friends and admirers Sandy made along the way. We are holding them all, her family, friends, and especially Sandy’s partner Will, in our collective Strawberry heart, as we offer our deepest condolences. Sandy was always positive, always willing to help, and truly embodied the essence of The Strawberry Way. The absence of her brilliant light and joyous spirit will be tangible. Rest in peace, dear, sweet friend.
