Peggy wasn't just a sister-in-law, she was a family member just like a biological sister. she will be truly missed. We remember all the great family gatherings! We especially remember all the fun camping and playing games. It was always fun just having family time. It is an adjustment trying to make since of this sudden sorrow and grief. It makes it easier knowing she was a wonderful Christian wife, mother, family member & friend to all. We know exactly where she is spending eternity! She is in the presence of our Lord, probably singing in that Heavenly choir as you read this. Praying for the whole family in your time of grief. May you feel Gods love & comfort. We love you Jay & Joyce
