Angela our thoughts & prayers are with you at this sad time. We had the pleasure of being in Sunday School with your Mom & Dad at Walnut Grove Baptist Church many years ago & we have many fond memories from those years. As you travel this road of grief, we pray that warm memories will help you through this difficult process. May God bless you with comfort & peace.
I met Peggy at your wedding. It was so sweet how she sat in the dressing room watching you get ready, complimenting your hair and makeup, watching her little girl get ready on her big day. It is a wonderful memory.
Angie, I’m so sorry that you will miss your mom. Like Jeannette, my memory of her watching her little girl get ready for her wedding is a special moment and us girls shared that together. She was there with grace. She will continue to see special moments as she watches over you from heaven and her love for you, and your love for her will continue through eternity. Sincere love and condolences to you. I hope that you will find comfort and peace as you talk to your mom knowing that she is rejoicing as an angel.
Angie, so sorry for the loss of your Mom. I, along with my late husband, Wayne, go way back. We grew up together, went to high school together, were neighbors, worked together, and were best of friends for so many years. I lost track of her over the last few years. Her passing leaves a void for me as she was so much a part of my live for so many years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and John. Take care
Was sorry to hear about Peggy. She and Kitty were loyal and active members of our Leisure Group at First English Church. My first trip to Hawaii , I roomed with Peggy and I have memories of the Mai Tai’s we had at The Blue Lagoon in Lahania, and then sitting on the Lanai at our hotel in Kannapalli and waving to Harold the Trolley driver as he went by on his rounds. He would give us free rides to Lahania and The Whalers Village. When we got to the hotel at Wakiki, we had a great laugh over the new commodoe i n the bathroom that had a button on top to flush instead of a handle,Peggy thought that was funny. Was also on several Cruises with her and Kitty and we always had fun together. And I loved to hear her talk about Charlie.
