    Calvin, Mark, Danny, and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing. I new Peggy when I was a child, growing up in the same neighborhood as Danny & Mark. Peggy was always smiling and very nice to all the kids that she came into contact with. She was a kind woman who will be missed by many. My prayers and thoughts will be with the entire family. May you find strength and comfort in your time of need. May God bless you all.
