That was a beautiful service that celebrated her love of her Lord and her love of her family.
I, and my family, will forever cherish our time with Peggy that started with a friendship of two men on a ship and continued with their loving and supportive wives.
Peggy always made us laugh and made the best macaroni salad. Now I know the secret ingredients were Helman's mayonnaise and sugar. Wish we could be there to support you in person. I am praying that the Lord will carry you during this time of loss and trusting He will provide all that you need, in Jesus Name.
Love you all,
Melody
