    Sweet Tammy, I am so sorry for your loss of your dear mother, Darlene Peffer. I wish we could lift all the heaviness from your heart right now. I loved what you said about your Mom on Facebook about how out-going she was and how much fun you two shared. The poem on your page titled “Mother” says it all, though. It is true – her spirit will always be with you and you will know it and feel it also in time. I know you made her very happy and proud as her daughter, Tammy. I am sure her heart overflowed with joy when you became Jesse’s mother! You are so strong, such an incredible woman, so full of love! Please know how much we all love you and want to do whatever we can for you, Tammy.
    Sincere Condolences and Love, Prudence
