  • Carl, our thoughts and prayers are with you!!! Thank you for introducing Jayne and I to your mother, such a wonderful person. May you find peace in knowing she is always watching over you. She raised a great son in yourself and it is and always will be a pleasure to have good friends such as you in my life. May God bless you and your family!!!

  • Peggy went thru school with my sister Margaret so I knew her well. We used to go to Pendleton’s home on Grove street. When Peggy got her divers license she came down to our home and took “us” for a ride in their family car. I said “us” because I got to ride along in the back seat. Peggy was always a kind, gentle person. I remember her laugh! I won’t be able to attend services for her because I’m a “stay home safe” person per my pulmonary doctor during covid. I ❤️d the video of her life! I’m lifting your family up to The Lord for comfort.
