Peggy was a wonderful friend and neighbor. She is missed. Other than babysitting her granddog, one of her greatest joys the past few years was cooking for her family on Monday evenings. I hope knowing how much happiness her family brought her will somehow give you comfort and peace.

So sorry for your loss. Your mother was a beautiful sweet and Classy Lady. I will remember her always from Gethsemane Lutheran Church. The Heck's were a great Christian Family.
