My condolences to the family for their loss. I met the Will's family when I met their daughter, my friend, Becky through business college in WV. What a wonderful family they are, that reached out to me on so many levels. Peggy's sweet kind spirit is what I remember most about her. I feel fortunate that I got to witness the true kindness of the Will's family as they opened their home to me in my travels going West and again going back East when then, they helped nurture my first broken heart in life. I am forever grateful to all of them and know the two of them are together again...at last rejoicing in their reunion. I love you all. May Love, Light and Peace be with you all in this most difficult time of missing her physical presence...but her spirit...their spirits are with you still.

Stacey and Becky,
Your mom was a wonderful and sweet lady. I always enjoyed talking to her and assisting her when I was at CrownPointe. My deepest sympathy to you and your families.
