    She was the Naomi to my Ruth. I learned so much from her, especially about Rizkallah men lol. She will be dearly missed but it’s not goodbye it’s see you later in Heaven. Praise God she’s with him free of pain, sorrow and suffering and eternally praising him wrapped on pure joy and the love of God.
    I love you mom! See you in a while.

    I will always remember her as being a kind welcoming and funny lady! She loved her car racing and her Yankees! And she made some pretty good pasta sauce! She is now in our Lords home playing with Pooh Bear, Misty and my kitty Custard. 🌹🌹🌹🌹

    We were so sorry to hear of Aunt “Peg’s” passing. We hope you find peace and comfort in all the good memories she gave to all of us. We pray you are blessed with strength knowing her pain and suffering has left her while God took her gently in His arms.

    Aunt Peggy was a wonderful lady. Always willing to add in a quip, laugh and thought on a subject. I loved that she shared her mind but had a way to do it that was loving yet bold. Hugs and prayers to all my cousins and their families and Uncle Joe. May God bring those memories to your minds and hearts and bring you peace.
