Rest on my beloved peggy 😒 the heavenly Angels πŸ˜‡ await you, where there will be no more pains, worries, fears and uncertainty. I will miss you dearly.... I love you but God love you more and am so glad you knew that, so I take solace in that and in God's words to us in. Thessalonians 4:13-14
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. Adieu!! my beloved peggy Rest In the blossoms of the good lord Amen πŸ™!

When I was the Front Desk Resident Assistant at Atherton Place I had many opportunities to visit with Peggy and get kisses from Gizzy. She was truly
One of the sweetest most gentle people
I've ever met. I know her family must be just devastated over losing her so I ask them to remember her genuinely
sweet spirit and loving nature and fi d peaceful hearts soon.

I loved Peggy. She was a wonderful friend, always encouraging and loving. And her sense of humor, that beautiful laugh... I had hours and hours of good conversations with her. I will miss her for the rest of my life.
