I worked with Peggy for many years at Smith Hdwe while her children were small & got to see all of them grow up. She was a trooper & never let anything get her down. I am so sorry for your loss. May God give you peace & comfort in the days, weeks & years to come. Every holiday will hopefully bring back fond memories of times past. Live & prayers. Patsy.
