    Lisa & Marcus…Peggy was a delight. She was so fiesty. She told me one time not to call her Miss Peggy because she wasn’t that much older than me (and she wasn’t). I don’t know how she managed to drive as long as she did because she got so stooped she couldn’t see out the car window. Her humor was contagious and she didn’t mind telling you exactly how she felt about any subject. I miss her. Our church has lost a faithful member and a good Christian woman. Love and hugs to all of you. She left a legacy of love and fun.

    Dear Lisa and family:

    Your Mom was a very sweet lady. I use to pick her up and take her to choir practice on Wednesday nights until her health would no longer allow her to go. She had a beautiful alto voice and loved to sing hymns. May God’s promises bring peace and comfort to you and your family until that day when you are reunited in God’s heavenly kingdom. She has been missed since she left our community but we will always remember her.
