My condolences to the family at this time. May God send many blessings.
We lost a beautiful soul. I am holding our memories close at heart right now which of course makes me sad but also overwhelms me with love. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have had her as my grandmother and that my children were blessed with a great-grandmother who loved them so fiercely. I am going to miss that fiery spirit and those endless stories. ( Even if she told you one a million times before, you were going to hear it again! lol 😉) She will always be my favorite story teller. My heart aches that we cannot be together as family and loved ones to grieve and honor her properly. 😔 I know when this horrible time comes to an end we will have a service she deserves. It will overflow with love & purple! 💜 I can’t wait to hug each and every one of you and be in your company. Especially you momma! For now I send all my love from across the pond. 👐💨🍃💞💜
Love you all so much!

My Heart was saddened when I got the News of My Sweet Cousin Peggy’s passing. She was a very Sweet, Loving person who loved her Family, Friends and Relatives very Much. I enjoyed talking with her of olden times of our Relatives and Families and of how much that they meant to Both of Us. The last time that I came home to Hawesville, Kentucky to attend a Funeral for Wayne Buck I had the opportunity to sit there with Peggy and share some good memories with her and I gave her a Photograph of My Dad, Mom, Ricky and Me when I was about a little over 2 months old in 1950 and she was really Happy to receive it and she told me that she remembered when it was taken. I loved her a lot and her Death has left a Big void in my life as well. To all of her Family I want to say that My Heart aches for all of you in your Great Loss of your Loved one. May the Heavenly Father give to each of you Great Peace, Comfort, and Understanding and May he lead you through the Valleys of Despair to the Top of the Mountains.
I feel sad that my grandma is gone. I wish we could come home to be with everyone. I’m going to miss our talks and stories. She had the best stories ever! When we can be together I am going to give everyone so many hugs! I can’t wait to cuddle with you Nonnie!
I love you Grandma
Like most of our family I’ve known Grandma Peggy since birth, she took care of me. I thank her so much for helping me grow into who I am today. It tears me apart that none of us could’ve been there when she needed us most. I would give all of you the biggest of hugs if I were there, hopefully we will come back soon. Rest easy grandma. I LOVE YOU

You were amazing, Peggy, in every way a grandmother can be. I was always grateful and amazed of the unconditional love you consistently showed to us and the whole family, including Bruno when you stayed with him while we were gone so many times. If you weren’t demonstrating your love to us through cooking huge and wonderful meals for us, sharing insightful and funny stories constantly, or just taking every opportunity possible to see us, you made sure to tell us on the phone how much love you had for us when we couldn’t be there.
You will surely be missed by everyone you’ve touched, but especially so from your family. I will love you always.
I don’t know how this is supposed to sound. Not sure what I’m supposed to say. I just know that I loved my Grandma Peggy with all my heart. Words can’t express how hard it is to go on without her. She was the glue that held everything together. So many memories, so many stories. She was a great lady. So much love to give.
Fly high, Grandma! Watch over us all! Hope you’re catching up with friends and family! See you again, one day…

I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Peggy (Mom). She was a wonderful soul and a very special person. I will miss talking to her. I will miss her cooking (especially those cookies she made for me). May Peggy’s whole family be comforted by the Almighty and all their wonderful memories. God Bless You Mom.
