We were saddened to hear that Sandy Olson, long-time Editor of the “Lakeside Living” column in El Ojo del Lago, passed away in San Francisco on Sunday, November 24 after a short illness.
Born and raised in El Cerrito, California, Sandy found her heart in Mexico—first in Zihuatanejo and finally in Ajijic. She was a loyal friend and talented writer with an infectious wit who will be greatly missed by her many friends in the Ajijic Writers Group and numerous other social, spiritual and writing groups to which she belonged.

The entire staff of our magazine will long remember Sandy for her professionalism, upbeat attitude and deep sense of loyalty to everything and everybody she held dear. One of Sandy’s last articles, sent to us from her hospital room, is included in this issue. (page: 10)
