I am so sorry that I could not make it to your mother's service, We had several family members in town and I could not get away that day. Your mother was such a sweet caring lady. You were certainly your mother's daughter as you have those same gracious traits. I always loved visiting your home back in high school on the way out of Connersville and always remember having supper club there. Your home on 8th street hill was so warm and inviting and so wonderfully welcoming every time I was able to be there with you, your husband and your mother. She will be missed by many as she touched many lives. Prayers for you and your family.

My dear Aunt Peggy will be sorely missed. I thank my cousin Julie for caring for her for so many years. Y'all had a special bond. Condolences to cousin Scott. It's so tough to lose a parent. I love my family and I loved my Aunt Peggy. Even though the miles separated us, one always understands the bond of family. For me it's very true. Blood is thicker than water. I love you Aunt Peggy. I'll miss you and will see you in heaven.

Aunt Peggy was a classy and elegant lady. She was always dressed so stylishly. She was a beautiful loving person and was so down-to-earth.
I loved her so much and will miss her until the day that we meet again.
I hope Julie and Scott and other family members and friends will find peace and comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain. Not only is she now able to walk upright without pain, she's able to run down the streets of gold. Who knows, she might even be chasing Uncle Jim.
