Ms Peggy, I look across the street and can still see you sitting on that porch chatting away with your MULTIPLE visitors - family and friends. I will forever cherish the "Hey. Le-la" anytime I walked by. I loved our visits on that porch with all your adopted kitties. Also - fussing at you for feeding that raccoon and possum outside your kitchen window - lol!!! So many precious memories of you and the Smith family- I would have to write a book!! My greatest comfort is knowing that you are with our Lord and all the family and friends that passed before you. Prayers for the Smith family…. Ms Peggy - you keep them on their toes up there - you hear???? 😆 I sure love you 💕
