Tajuana and Brenda,

I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet momma and sister.
Tajuana, everytime I saw your mom and told her I went to school with you...she would immediately light up and talk so sweetly about you. She was so proud of you and those kiddos.

Brenda, just knowing the sweet person you's no surprise Peggy was a sweetheart, too. Sisters are forever.

I know there is nothing I can say that will make it less painful...just know she will always be with you both and I feel certain she is very proud of the beautiful ladies and kind souls you both are. You will continue in my prayers now and in the months and year to come.

Prayers for comfort, peace and sweet memories for you and your families.

Peggy was the most selfless friend that I have ever had. Can't believe that she is gone. She always called my mother her 2nd mother. WE loved her so much! She gave so much of herself to everyone. Often times she was hurt by many people but she loved them anyway. She was beautiful inside and out. I so wish I could be there today to tell her goodbye. I know she is completely healed and with her precious Mother and sister in Heaven. Prayers for her family.
