    Aunt Peggy, my heart is broken but I know you are rejoicing, being reunited with uncle A.B. And Bryant. I know you are also cooking your good ole collards, fried chicken and pecan pie! You and Uncle A.B. we’re always special to me! You both were so good to our mom and I thank you for all you did for me growing up as well! I will miss you dearly! Your service today was so fitting and perfect for you. The message, music and celebrating your life was a tribute to you. I will miss our conversations but will always have you in my ❤️.

    You were such a sweet lady! Met you at piggly wiggly- my very first job and you instantly became a favorite customer and then extended family. Your presence on earth will be missed, but you've left behind memories of laughter and smiles that we'll hold in our hearts forever. ❤️
