Peggy was very much a people person, she never met a stranger, she loved spending time with her family and when one would come to the house for a visit all she had to hear was Hot Rod, are you ready for a ride and she was in the car ready to go.

I knew Mrs White as I was growing up & always considered her as my second mom. She always had sandwiches & iced tea ready for all the hungry boys. Margaret came to know her after we married. She thought your mom was always so kind, cheery & thoughtful. In talking, you could tell the love she had for her family. Our prayers are with you during this time of loss. Know that she has joined God's heavenly Angels & will always be with you.
