Sandy Allen 2nd World Tallest Woman: Be In Peace

Yesterday, I read in the news that the world tallest living woman (That's according to Guinness. There is another taller young woman in China who is not in the Guinness Book. I saw a documentary about her a while back), Sandy Allen, had passed away at age 53. I read on that she was proud of herself, and was dedicated to telling children at church and schools, that it's okay to be different. Being tall was a very effective way to teach them that. Overall, She was quite an amazing woman.

I decided to look her up on the net, and came upon a site for tall women who are 6'6 1/2 and over. There is a page about her.

Its strange, as someone also named "Sandy Allen," to see so many entries today about the passing of this Sandy Allen. I've read quite a bit about her since first coming across her in Guinness when I was a kid, and she was so much more than just her 'sideshow' looks. She will be missed!
