Peggy and Tommy have always been a joy to be around. Full of kindness to others. We will miss her and look forward to seeing her again soon healthy and happy!!
So sorry for your loss. You’all have been the greatest friends anyone could ever have.
We’d like to give our condolences to the Platt family.
Lots of great memories going to the Platts home for service and book study when we very first came to meetings. Peggy will be missed very much.
This system in such a burden. Soon the last enemy will be brought to nothing and we will see our dear sister again.(1 Cor 15:26) The pain you now feel will soon be replaced with a joy like we have never known. (John 5:28 & 29) It’s “just around the corner.” In the meantime may Jehovah comfort you. (2 Cor 1:3 & 4)
We knew Peggy she was a very sweet, kind person she will be missed. We pray that Jehovah comforts the family.
