Memories Timeline


  1. Prayers for all the family and friends. She was a special person. Loved her and Mr. Homer…

  2. So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. Ms. Peggy was a sweet kindhearted Christian woman. My prayers are for strength and peace during this time for each of you.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. Peggy was such a sweet friend of mine since I first met her at the church in the early 80s. I will miss her much but I know I will see her again someday in our heavenly home. May God bless the family during this time as Peggy and Homer have blessed me over the years.
