God bless you all. Peggy and Patsy were one of the sister "teams" that grew up at Pruitt Ave. Baptist church. Barbara, Judy, and Marilyn Riley, another "sister team of PABC," send our condolences. I know you will miss her dearly.

Mom. No amount of words will describe how much I will miss you. My favorite memories of you will be us in the living room watching UT football games on TV. I love you. Say hello to my mother and father for me.

Patsy I only met your sister two times and both were under stress but I could see the love she had for you and you for her and that love will give you the strength you will need during this time. She is in a place that all of us are praying that we will be one day. No pain only LOVE.

Love n God Bless Mary Alice Gamm

Our hearts are full with the memory of Richard and Peggy's visit with us in Reno circa 2006. We recall with fondness our departure from Zephyr Cove aboard the MS Dixie II paddle wheeler bound for a cruise around Tahoe's Emerald Bay. What a beautiful time, place, and experience. We remember standing in line with Richard and Peggy at the Silver Legacy buffet -- every moment a treasure to remember. We love you Richard, Patsy, Stacy, Sarah, Michael, David, and all the other beloved members of this family. Peggy's memory will always hold a special place in my heart as she was the daughter of my beloved brother Grady. With love, Aunt Lucy.

I never met Peggy, but know her cousin, Mary,who loved her deeply. We have been praying for Peggy at our church. Her battle has been long but the victory is hers! This is a tough time for all of you and my prayers continue for your peace and knowledge that God is always in control. Please let Him comfort you as you mourn this great loss of one so dear to so many.
