Todd and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Peggy was a wonderful friend to our Curves Divas group. She was so loved by her family and friends. We will miss her and love her forever.
Todd, prayers for your family. I know Peggy had many friends. Our families in Sherman, Texas were close. I used to Babysit Peggy and her two brothers, Rob and Greg. Lots of great memories there. I’ve kept up on facebook with an occasional comment. I last saw Peggy at her mom’s house not long before Dora passed. I know she will be missed.
Peggy was a dear friend. She would be there no matter what. She was a good listener and would help you out when you neede her . One thing for sure she would always be honest and she never judged you. She will be missed but at least there is no more pain and knowing Peggy she will always be watching over her family. Love Y’all, Liz
Wishing you peace to bring you some comfort and courage to face the loneliness of her smiles ahead and loving memories to forever hold Mrs. Pegg in your heart! My heartfelt condolences
Oh Todd, John, Mechelle and Amber – my heart is aching for you all at Peggy’s passing. What a zest and love for life she had. I’ll will always remember the fun, laughter, smiles and hugs. The nights of playing pool @ Joe’s, the great parties at your house, the boob cake Peggy made for Byron’s HS graduation. We all will miss Peggy, but I know you’ll miss her the most. You have a village of friends here to support you. I bet Peggy & Hayward are having a drink & shooting some pool in Heaven right now. Love you all
