In the short time I was able to be a part of this family I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know "Mema"... she was the sweetest woman and adored my son, Vause. She always made us feel welcomed in her home and greeted us with a loving hug and a bright smile. Prayers going up for the family as they lay her to rest. She will certainly be missed.

Amy Johnson, Ashville, AL

Mark and I send our sympathy! Ms. Peggy was a wonderful lady. God bless all of you! Mark and Julie Gannam

It was a privilege to know Ms. Johnson. I so enjoyed the good times we had, especially when I could make her laugh. I will never forget our times at the Bingo hall on Friday nights. My deepest sympathy go out to her family.
