Mr. Arnold, Deanna told me about Mrs. Peggy and I'm so sorry. When I met both of You at Mrs. Alma's a few years back, we became good Friends and I hadn't forgot the phone calls and cards that were special to me. Mrs. Peggy and me had so many laughs together. I'm Praying for You All and will see You in Wrightsville. Love Y'all, Marie

Dear Arnold, Patty and family, We hold all of you in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time. We have such fond memories of the many years we worshipped together at LW church. Peggy was such a lovely lady. We will never forget her. We will always remember Arnold and Peggy sitting side by side in the church pew in the old sanctuary. Arnold I know this is a hard time for you, as you are now without your beloved life's partner. What a blessing to spend three quarter's of a century together. May all the happy memories and God's grace sustain you.
