Cathy, Gary and family - I am so sorry to hear about the deaths of Roger and Peggy. They were great people. I remember them well as classmates at E.M. Holt High School.

Gary & Cathy I'm sorry your having to cope with another loss so soon.May God bless you and guide you though this time of need.Peggy was always very kind to me.I remember her and Roger always picking and joking back and fourth with each other.I think that's why she had to go ahead get back to him.He was probably talking alittle junk and she said wait just a minute.They were good people and the world could use more like them.
