Gary and Chris, so sorry to hear the news of Peggy's passing. She was such a sweet lady and always knew who I was no matter how much time had passed between meetings. As you know for a few year's she was my neighbor and was always kind to me and my family. Sadly she will be missed but memories will live on. If there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to let me know. May God be with you and your loved one's at this difficult time and always. May she rest in piece for God has called her home. With Love Theresa

Danielle and family, so sorry for the loss of Grandma Denny. I enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa Denny while you guys were up here on vacation. I would see them out and about together quite often too. One of the last times I saw them together was at the Lisbon Homecoming parade. I found their cell phone on the ground and was able to catch up with them and give it to them. I remember bowling on the ladies league with Peggy. She was pretty much a steady figure on the league, always there, every week. May God bless her soul, and welcome her home. Love you... Danielle, Shawn, Michael, and Regan
