What beautiful pictures of a lovely family! Keep those precious memories close as you navigate your loss. Of her four daughters, it was Ginger that I was closest to and with whom I first met your dear Mom. I know each of you in various ways (some through my own 3 Peeples’ siblings and others through our Homewood connections). It was wonderful to see your lives through pictures and the joys of your children and spouses.
My family and I will have you in our thoughts and prayers. Much love, Jeannie (Peeples) Branham
