    God bless all of Peggy’s family. My family loved her dearly.
    When we heard she had died we were all shocked. She was fine the last time she called my sister, Alecia Craig, and that was just a few weeks ago. She had just had knee surgery and was doing okay.
    I am in Florida, on vacation, or I would have been at her funeral. My cousin saw this notice today and sent it to me.
    Peggy wrote so many nice articles about Mother. Mother, who died back in December at the age of 103, loved Peggy so much and considered her as her best friend.
    I know they are together once again, laughing and talking ‘old times’ like they enjoyed doing together.
    Your Mother was a precious, dear friend of our family and will always have a place in our hearts.
    We are all still shocked and puzzled at the news of her sudden death.
    My God bless you all and comfort you in your time of deep sadness.
    Love,Linda Hawks
    Daughter of the late Grannie Smith, Humboldt
