Carl & family, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. My prayer is that all the wonderful memories you have of you Mom will carry you through the days ahead. May God comfort each and every one of you in the upcoming days! Sandy (Morgan) Davenport Sandy Morgan Davenport, May 14, 2011 I have so many wonderful memories of Granny (Peggy), since I've known her when Dennis and I was 10. We had so many good heart to heart talks through out all these years. I'm gonna miss talking to her especially on our birthday. We would see which one of us would call the other first. Yeah, most of the time she was the first to call. Peggy was and always will be ONE SPECIAL LADY to me. Granny, you was not only my friend but also my family. I LOVE YOU GRANNY!
