To Peggy’s Family:
I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I didn’t know Peggy as well as my parents did, having lived in the Jennings Manor for 11 years. She was always full of smiles, loved playing bingo with her, and my Dad enjoyed playing cards with her too. She was very sweet & thoughtful in her words. I can only hope she is at peace and is playing bingo with my parents ( Emily & Al Booker), in heaven.
Prayers for all of you.........

So sorry to read this sad news this morning. I worked with Peggy many years ago. We met after graduating high school and worked at an insurance company in Providence. We kept in touch for many years but like anything else, as our families grew we lost contact with each other. I have a lot of happy memories with Peggy. She was a happy person. My deepest sympathy to all her family. She is in my prayers as well as all her family.

I was so saddened to learn of Peggy's passing. We went through St. Matthews from the seventh grade and Cranston East for three more years. She was the sweetest person. Her family and friends have suffered a great loss, and I'm sure she will be in the hearts forever.

sending prayers to God for his comfort and strength to help you cope with your loss Peggy was a very nice lady and will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched,

Emily - 01/25/2019

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I hope you may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and he even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.
