So sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. We enjoyed a wonderful relationship while Joe pastored to our church in Winchester, VA. I have always remembered them with fondness after they left our church family. My daughters were the same age of Kristi and Angie while here and quite nice girls. My sincerest sympathy to the entire family. May God Bless everyone and provide comfort at their time of loss.
