Peggy had a heart of gold. She was a second mom to me which I needed at times. I can remember her her laughter and her calming voice. The time cole locked me in handcuffs to my steering wheel. She was there to help us out of another pickell we would get into. Its like my childhood has finally come to and end. She's at peace now along beside Major and my mom. Heaven just got a little brighter. I wasn't able to be there cole, to celebrate your mother life but know this. I am a better person having know your mother and your father. They were apart of the best things in my life. Thank you cole for sharing them with me. God bless you and your family
