    Sharon and Family, My heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Peggy is more alive today than she’s ever been. Walking the streets of gold, reunions with family, praising Jesus pain and worry free. She would not wish to trade places with any of us. Love you all as we await our big REUNION.

    Sharon ,I remember Ms Peggy from our many sleep- overs. She would say to us, at 3am, girls time to sleep now. I never saw her angry, such a sweet Christian spirit. I am amazed at the care you gave her, so patiently and loving. She lived 93 blessed years and will be missed. You deserve a crown and I know that God has a big one for you, waiting.

    Sharon and family, just want you to know that today I’m not grieving to day for Peggy. I grieve for you for I know how much a mother means in our lives. Aside from mama, I have to say Peggy loved and cared for the Benton children more then we will ever know. I know she had an impact on our lives spiritually. James, Wanda and I would sit on the old front steps and watch as Peggy headed to church with your hand in hers, and how we longed to go to, but I guess we just didn’t have good clothes for all of us to wear. Peggy would make sure she would share Sunday School with us. I can see as Peggy crossed over, Mama was there with all the family to greet her, and I can’t help but laugh as I think of the time we all went to Sight and Sounds in Pa. Peggy told us she would take care of mama on the bus. All you could hear was them to laughing and having a good old time. She was so much like Aunt Margie, full of fun and laughter. No more tears now, and Perhaps Jimmy is singing to her, her favorite song “Peg of my heart”, while J.T. listens on. Love you girl, always good memories. Jeanette
