Dear Mary Jo & Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sadness, here on earth; however, we know that your Mom is in Heaven this year for Christmas. I have such fond memories of going with you and your parents camping, watching them square dance and always being made welcome in your home. Peg made a wonderful impression on my life as to what a “real family” was like. I will be forever grateful for those memories. May she rest in peace and maybe even dance with the Angels. God Bless.

My heart is filled with sorrow because of the loss of your sweet mother, especially during this season of the year. Oh how I remember Chuck and Peg trying to teach me how to make a flower arrangement at one of their many classes. They were such a fun couple, always laughing together and making every moment the best. My sincere condolences to Pat and the entire family. Rest In Peace, Peg, and may God be with you and bless you all.

My dearest Shepherd family, I am so sorry for your loss. One of my fondest memories was staying with you all when we had a flood and your mom/wife made the most delicious, outrageous, red velvet cake. Well, I had never had anything so lovely. She will be missed. I will keep you all in my prayers. I know your memories of her will give you peace and make you smile everyday. Much love at this time
