Peggy Jo was a high school classmate and lifelong friend. She will be missed.
I am truly sorry for your loss. Peggy was my son’s daycare teacher at Lithia First Baptist more years ago than I would like to admit. I reconnected with her at Benton House where my mother is also a resident. I would try to see her every time I was there. I will miss our visits, her wit and smile.
I have life long wonderful memories of Ms. Peggy. I always loved when she stopped by the house to say hello after I returned to my childhood home. She always had a smile on her face and kind words to share. She loved her family and friends. Just to be around her would brighten my mood. I will always remember and love her. Now I am sure she is dancing with my parents in Heaven. All my love and prayers to Brenda and the rest of the family. My deepest condolences.
Mrs. Furr was a wonderful lady. My condolences to her family
