Condolence & Memory Journal


Mom, it's been 9 months since you walked into the arm of Jesus. I can still hear you say, " I want to see Jesus, I want to see Jesus." Just know you are so dearly missed & if we could, we would all bring you back. But we also know, you are with Jesus & enjoying your parents & sister. I love you so very much & miss you. I miss our talks every night @ 9PM. Until later, Mom! I love you.

We are so sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. She was always a fine woman, a great mom and a loving wife. While we hadn't seen her ourselves in quite some time, she will always be remembered with love and will no doubt be forever comforted in God's care.

We send all our love and prayers during this difficult time.

David and Hughes Family,

I remember how you and your family accepted Max and I as "members" of your family. Michael and Susie were our son Tim's Godparents. We came to your home for a birthday celebration and became part of your family. We dearly loved Peggy with her laugh and quick smile. We would run into the two of you at Liberty Dinner many times over the years and we would tease you about being major stock holders in the restaurant with its delicious food.!

I know Peggy is and will greatly be missed by all, but I also know she is with her Heavenly Father who has taken away all her pain and suffering. My prayer is for you and the family for peace, strength and comfort in the coming days.

God bless you all.

Linda and Max Felger
