Mrs. Margaret Morris impressed me as a very down to earth lady the few times that she was here in California. Her warm personality will sure be missed even by those she had met briefly. My prayers for her and her family during this time of transition. Life never ends when it is etched in one’s heart. —— Jorge

Dear Ron and Family, Peg was a wonderful woman. She put up with a lot of pain, and I never heard her complain. She was always outgoing, friendly, and upbeat. I will miss her, and send you my prayers that you will soon be past the pain of loss and able to treasure your memories of Peg.

My grandchildren live in Savannah, Georgia and are home schooled. they were privileged to have Miss Peg come to their home and read to them every Wednesday for the last couple years. She would have them read to her first to see how they were progressing. There would then be a tea party, sometimes with hats for my granddaughter, and Miss Peg. She read the classics, the seven series of the Wizard of Oz, and many other books that delighted them. I had the privilege of meeting her a few times when I visited Savannah and the family. The children adored her. She was so patient and encouraging. My children, Steve and Linnea Posner and grandchildren, Esther, Edmund and Tyndale Posner, are grieving along with you. Wednesdays will never be the same.
