We considered Peggy and Butch good friends while we were in Tallahassee. I was so sorry to hear of her illness, but remember her great smile and wonderful attitude.

Oh my, how sad it is to here of your home-going. I first met Mrs. Golightly when I was in high school at Marietta Christian School in Marietta, GA. What a precious lady she was...Randy Cochran

Serenaded by angels, up to the throne
Serenaded by angels, finally at home
Surrounded by praises to the King
Welcome to paradise, the angels did sing!
No more suffering or pain for your mom.
Cherish the wonderful times with her and know you will see her again one day in heaven.
It has been years since I have seen her…but what I remember most is her love for her children.
May God give each of you peace and comfort for the days ahead.
With Sympathy,
Lila Dyer
