Sandy Allen was one of my closest friends for 31 years and she truly was an inspiration to many people. She loved to go to schools and talk to kids about tolerance and acceptance in a program called "It's OK to be Different." She had a great sense of humor and a caring heart, always reaching out to everyone around her. I have written a book about her life in high school called "World's Tallest Woman: The Giantess of Shelbyville High" (Hawthorne Publishing) which is available through www.amazon.com, www.barnedandnoble.com or my website, www.thegiantessbook.com. Please visit my website for personal photos of Sandy and background info on the book, as well as the eulogy I wrote for her funeral. She is greatly missed! Rita Rose

She was such an inspiration to all. She helped other people by listening and showing that one with an affliction could live a rewarding life. The Lord and His angels have welcomed her into Paradise where she will never again know pain.

Never knew her personally but always watched any program she was on. What a wonderful human being she was! Only wish she had gotten a chance to walk again like she wanted to but in spite of her inability to do so, she still STOOD tall. Will miss you Sandy. My deepest sympathy to the family.

We met Sandy several times in Wildwood, New Jersey and also in Niagara Falls, Canada. She was very pleasant and had so much to offer. She was truly inspirational and a reminder that we all have our own unique qualities to share.....make the best of it while you can because life is so short. Rest in peace. Maureen and Pat

my memory of sandy was when she had been in a wheel chair for a long while and I finally talked her into tring to walk again. When she did she felt great. No she didn't walk really far but she pushed her self to the limit. I loved her for that. Another fond (very fond) memory of sandy was when we went to the second chance prom at the convinsion center in down town indianapolis. We had a wounderful time she really had alot of fun. Thank you for all the memorys. Sadly missed!!

I did not have the pleasure to know her personally, but I wanted to extend my sympathies to the family of someone that clearly was an inspiration to many.

SANDY WAS A KIND AND GENTLE PERSON AND WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL THE LIVES SHE TOUCHED. HER SUFFERING OF THE LAST FEW YEARS IS OVER AND SHE IS IN A FAR BETTER PLACE THEN WE ARE NOW. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE PROGRAMS AND BIOGRAPHIES I COULDN'T WAIT TO WATCH ABOUT HER. A TRUE INSPIRATION TO ALL MANKIND.

A very gentle and caring woman especially for the local children in Shelbyville... Her many visits to the local elementary schools made many lasting impressions on them. May god bless you Sandy..

It was my pleasure to meet and dine with Sandy Allen years ago at one of the TCI Weekends hosted by Paramount Tall Club of Chicago. She has the same thoughts, emotions and feelings as we all do. Sandy will always stand tall and proud in our hearts and memories and taught us to do the same.

It is not important how big your shoes are but how well you filled your shoes. You filled your shoes well Sandy.
