So sorry to hear of Ms. Peggy's passing. She was a good neighbor for more than 30 years. We've missed watching her care for her yard. Prayers of comfort for the family.

We remember your Mother fondly as our Greenwood back door neighbor .
She WAS a hard worker and dedicated to her family and especially her sons.
We were sad to learn of Chris’ death a few years ago and sent her a sympathy card.
She was a strong, good woman.
God Bless you All,
The Sutton Family
