    I wanted to take the time to remember Peggy. She was a good women. She never turned her nose up to anyone. She never had anything bad to say about anyone. And whenever I would see her she would talk my ear off with everything she has been doing. And being just as concerned about what was going on with my life. God Bless You Jimmy and if you should happen to need anything call me. 269-270-4015

    Jim and Jason:
    Words are a bit difficult right now, but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    I have so many fond memories of Peggy through the years.
    It seems like everytime we got together, something a bit unusual happened. One example would be the time Peggy and I drove to the east side of the state to have dinner with Jason and Jackie.
    We stopped at a gas station in Charlotte to grab a quick drink for the road. After quite a few minutes, I’m wondering where Peggy is.
    I went back inside and there she was, waiting for a pizza! I knew at that moment that Peggy was a person to admire.
    The time a group of us attempted to go to the Soaring Eagle Casino and never made it. Peggy just sat in the rider seat, probably wondering what just happened as the car veered off the road and into the median.
    She will be remembered for her sweet and caring nature.

    Cousin Sandy
