  • Jack,Karen,Teresa,Kathy, and family. News of Peggy reached me this am. A flood of childhood memories came over me. Being an only child I never thought I would ever know what it was like to have siblings let alone 3 sisters. Karen, Teresa, and Kathy filled the bill. I am not sure who tortured who more. Peg was the peacemaker, and treated me like one of the family. We had a “Leave it to Beaver” life on West 5th St. I know my Dad to his death had special stories to tell about living with the Yale’s next door. We all were sad when the family moved. My love and prayers to all of you. Sincerely, Gary LaRue, and Bev

  • Dear Jack and family,

    It was my pleasure to know Peggy through the old car club activities. Although I was only a very minor aquaintance of Peggy’s, her remembrance of who I was when I did show up for a club activity and her kind manner certainly left an impression on me; I will miss her. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

  • Peggy, Jack and I were in same grad class from Col Hi in 1951. We got hooked up again through Ye Olde Car Club and had fun a couple times reminiscing some old occurences and friends back in those days. Peggy was a jewel back in those days and still now through her health struggles. We will miss her and plan to stay in close touch with Jack. Thank you Peggy and Jack for sharing yourselves with all their friends. Our thoughts and prayers with Jack and family through these times of loss.
