    Aunt Peggy was a very special lady. Her and Uncle Roy were a very loving and compassionate couple, the kind of people that made you feel loved and safe. I remember staying with Aunt Peggy, uncle Roy , Lynn, Kenny and Rex when I was a little girl and they all were welcoming, loving and made me feel special. They were a very bright spot in my childhood. All I have are happy and special memories of my time spent with them.

    Aunt Peggy was honest, loving and very caring, she will be missed. I will remember and cherish the last visit I had with her. We will see each other again someday and no doubt she will be the same loving and caring spirit as she was in her earthly body. I love you Aunt Peggy.

    Roy, Lynn, Kenny and Rex you were all very blessed to have had her as part of your family for so long. I love you all.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).
