    Grandma! You are an unforgettable, thoughtful and incredibly talented person. I just love thinking of your artistic talents and watching you create. You were always busy making beautiful things. I wish I could see them now with my adult eyes. I’m so proud of you. Thank you for coming to my college graduation. That trip meant the world to me. I love you and I hope to see (not too soon) but definitely in the future. Love your granddaughter, Laura πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

    I miss you so much grandma! I did the best I could for you and hope you are still proud of me. I know you are my guardian angel in Heaven now and you will watch over us. I'm so glad the boys got to know you. I will talk about all the wonderful times with you and grandpa to them so they learn who you were and see how special and important you were in my life. RIP Grandma. We love you and miss you deeply!

    Peggy has gone home to the Jesus she so loved. She was such a great friend to me as a younger girl and she'll always be remembered with love.
