Uncle Dave, David James and Erika,
I’m truly sadden by the passing of Aunt Peggy. I will never forget the weekends spent in NJ and fun cabin getaways we were all able to share.  I always looked forward to holidays where i was able to get a big hug and kiss from Aunt Peggy.  I know she is now in heaven looking after all of us until we meet up with her again. I’m sorry i can’t attend the services because of testing in school but ill be there in spirit and sending prayers. I love you all and pray for peace for your families. 
Take care and see you soon….
