Frank and family...we loved Peggy dearly and are so sorry to hear of her passing. Our fondest church memories at Lovedale and at Faith will always include Peggy. I cannot count the times she gave us advice and took care of our children when they were little. You are in our prayers. We are so thankful to know that we will see Peggy again one day. We love you all! ~ Mitch and Suzanne Hyde

I have known Peggy since I was 12 years old. We lived side by side during my teenage years and we all had so much fun. Then Lonnie and I got married and Lonnie and Frank worked together! We spent lots of good times together. Our kids played together, we attended church together, went on beach trips and picnics together. Lonnie always called Peggy his sweetheart. Frank, Jay, Charles and family, I am sorry we could not be with you during this sad time but circumstances won't allow it. Just know that we love you and pray that God will comfort you during this difficult time.
