I was a visiting ministering friend to Peggy from our church several years ago when we lived in Allen, TX. I loved seeing her at church and visiting with her each month in her home, and I also loved seeing Lap’s latest amazing, beautiful paintings she was so proud of too. Peggy was always so cheerful, gracious, sincere, respectful, and loving to me and to all around her. She reminded me so much of my own lovely, sweet grandmother in many ways. Peggy always showered everyone with her gentle nature, and with such goodness and kindness that easily exuded from her. She was such an Angel to be around and was without guile. As sad as it is for her loved ones to let her go, I’m sure our Heavenly Father has rejoiced to have her beautiful, special spirit return home to her heavenly home on high, after a life honorably well lived.
