    It is with sadness that I have lost a sweet dear friend. But heaven has gained and angel. Peggy was a very special friend of mine. I visited her often just to chat with her. She loved her family. I went to see her one day when, she was feeling pretty good. I ask her to play the piano for me. She played beautiful gospel songs. She is singing in the choir in heaven tonight. To her sweet family I know you will miss her so much. She was always there, and talked about how good her children were. Prayers for all of the family now, and the days to come.

    Robert, Howard, Kenneth & Patrica I’m so sorry to her about your mother’s passing. Guys my age (+/- a few years) we were treated well by all of y’all those years working in tobacco. I had a ball working on the farm and your parents took care of me and Roger when Kaye had a setback. Your mother was sweet and treated me like one of y’all. I’m out of town but back 01/12. I’ll see y’all soon.

    Jimmy and I are so sorry for your loss. Peggy was a very caring and kind woman. She will be missed. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers..

    Was just checking the obituaries for Oxford as I often do just in case there’s someone I know and your sweet mom’s face showed up today. I send my condolences to each of you, especially Patricia, Robert and Howard. I doubt seriously that Kent would remember me. I was Janice Dickerson and have fond childhood memories of visits to your home when spending time with Cathy. So sorry to hear about your mom’s passing but there certainly appears to be a lot of grandkids and great-grandkids to keep her memory alive. My best to you all.
