    My heartfelt condolence to the family of my dear friend and sister. Peggy was a wonderful sister in the VFW Auxiliary and one of the hardest working volunteers we ever had, especially to the VA Hospital in Biloxi where she served as VAVS Representative for the Department of Alabama for many years.

    We send our sincerest condences to the family. I hope that you will find the inner strength and grace to get you through this sad and difficult time. Tammy, Tricia , your siblings! I believe that the loss of one’s mother is by far one of the saddest events of anyone’s lifetime. There is just no other loss that measures up to this one and I pray God holds his arms around you and your family and give you comfort knowing your Mother is celebrating with Jesus our Lord. The Bible says “Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.” I pray that you will find peace &comfort in these words and that God will give you the strength and courage you need in this sad time. With all our love~~ Tammy, Tricia… I am thinking of you and I wish I could be there on this day. Love Kim and David~~~~~~
