The last time we made dresses for the Peru mission, Mrs. Sandifer was right there. Whenever I made a mistake she would patiently tell me about clipping every other thread to make it easy to pull out the seam. She has been a role model for all of us ladies at the church. Wearing oxygen and not able to walk very far, she still made it to church each Sunday to teach her class. She took her responsibilities very seriously. You could see the love she had for her children, grandchildren and great-grands. I know she is definitely with the angels now and probably teaching them how to sew heavenly garments.
