To all of Peggy's Precious Family,

I am so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you for your sorrow. I know the great depth of your love for your Mom/Grandmother/Great Grandmother and her love for you is impossible to measure. Though your hearts are heavy with grief please know that her love will always be within you and you will bring her love and spirit forward with you in the wonderful ways you live your lives.

On a personal level, I first met Peggy in 1968 when I was dating her niece and my future wife Margaret Dirscherl. From that very first meeting with her 50 years ago and through all the years since, she was always incredibly thoughtful and kind to me; always concerned with how I and my family were doing. When my wife Margaret passed away in 2001, Peggy was heart broken and the consolation and compassion she gave to us meant so much!

May God comfort you,
Love,
Jim Biolsi

To the entire Crawford and Brown family....
So sorry for the loss of Peggy. She was an extraordinary woman. Very kind, loving, generous, but don’t cross her or you’ll hear it. Many fond memories of her for years at her store but the one memory that jumps out is how she loved to read. She always had a book in her hands. If I remember correctly, usually some juicy romance novel. Reflection and rememberance of good times and bad will bring sadness and joy but she is now at peace. Terry, Billy, Shelia, Michael, Chris and Sandy you and your family are all in our thoughts and prayers. Wishing you peace during this difficult time. Much love.......
