    Jimmie, Linda, Greg, and all the family – we’re so sad to learn of Peggy’s home going. We never want to let go of those who mean so much to our lives. I let Gay know last night so this comes from us and all the Yankie Family.

    Peggy is lovingly remembered so sweetly from practically the beginning of our lives along with your Loving parents and a family we loved and knew so very well. Your lives were interwoven with ours in the community, school and church. You were our neighbors, and I can recall Daddy and Billie helping each other as we all did back then. It’s so hard to see Peggy leaving, as we loved her. But she’s joining loved ones, one day to have that circle unbroken. She holds a special place in our hearts and our special memories. She was so very special. We’re sending prayers and condolences to you all in this great loss. This comes from our hearts. Gay, Nancy and the Yankie Family
