I have known Maggie for 40+ years and that's how I met Pat. She was a gentle soul who had the most beautiful smile. I know there will be a void in everyone's life without her. May she rest in peace. Prayers for her family especially Maggie.

.My earliest chidhood memories were being with the Sandifer family. I was always at their house growing up. Miss Pat was always smiling and joking in her unique fashion. Messing with me & Dawn.. Friday nite shrimp fries and music at the house. I felt like it was my own home. I was very blessed to have Miss Pat in my life. She was a great influence. Much love and prayers to the family!!❤️🙏🏻✝️💜

Best memory of mom is every day I got to spend with her, even the days I was in trouble. She was still the best mom in the world.
