Sending my deepest condolences to you all. Maggie was just the sweetest person and will forever and ever hold a special place in my heart. I was lucky enough to see her a few months back at my nans memorial service where she volunteered at the legion to help. Someone told me she probably would not recognize me (it had been 20 years) and I went up to her and she put both hands on my face and said hello baby girl and gave me a big hug. Didn't matter how long it had been she knew exactly who I was, she will always be very special to me.
Maggie was a great lady who had the kindest heart. She was an incredible volunteer and friend. Maggie served on the Sunset Community Auxiliary and was strong advocate for the clients and staff. She was a natural leader and such a hard worker. She was so loved and respected by so many. She will be sorely missed. Until we meet again Maggie, love you Dear.
