Remembering Sandy

Parenting Autistic Children With Love & Acceptance are devastated by the news that Sandy Kinnamon, who had been missing since Sunday, was found deceased earlier today near her home in Allen, TX.  Sandy was formerly a part of the PACLA team, an advocate, an ally to the autistic community, a friend, and most importantly, a loving mom to her beautiful daughters.  Sandy helped to build the PACLA community by advocating for autism acceptance.  In her words and in her actions, she was helping to make a better world for autistic people.  We have lost a dear friend who was known for her compassion, dedication to her daughters, her sense of humor and generosity.  We are overwhelmed with grief for our friend, who has touched so many lives in the autism community.  While this is an incredibly sad day for us at PACLA, we find comfort in knowing how much she meant to so many.   We were all privileged to know Sandy and call her our friend.  
Please share your stories about Sandy at her memorial page:
