Dear Family, please accept my sincere condolences for your devastating loss. God knows the many tears that you cry. As you reflect on the many wonderful memories that Peggy left to cherish, may your hearts be moved. May God caress your aching hearts with his loving promise to reunite you together again in the future Paradise when he will bring an end to sickness, pain and even death. (Revelation 21:4, 5) You're in my prayers. (Acts 24:15)
Although I do not know you, please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. As a source of encouragement 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 give us consolation that the God of all comfort will comfort us in all our trials. Since Our God knows how painful it is when we lose our loved ones in death. Isaiah 25:8 mentions He purposes to swallow up death forever and wipe tears from all faces. Because this has not been His will for mankind. I hope you will please find comfort in these thoughts during this difficult time.

Dear Peggy, I can't believe you have left this world, it is still so hard to believe. Thank you for being the best boss ever. Thank you for holding everything together here at Easter Seals, and being so kind to the clients and staff. Thank you for being the best Mommy ever to all of your former pets, and Freedom and Liberty, your dogs that you had to leave. Thank you for your care, and your fabulous sense of humour, and your kindness and understanding. Thank you for the treats you gave us on holidays, and for the birthday presents we would find on our desk in the morning when we arrived at work. Thank you for all of the hard work and shopping you did to prepare for the special parties for the clients. You really put your heart into everything you did! You loved to celebrate and dance! Thank you Peggy for these precious memories. It was such a pleasure to work with you. I will especially miss running into you at shoprite and saying "Hi Peggy Skipp!!!" There is a big void here at work without you, and I feel a little lost, so send down some help from heaven, will you please?! and Bill, I never met you but could tell how much Peggy loved you, so please reach out to us if you need anything. For now, Peggy, Farewell, and enjoy your journey. Peace. Love, Colleen

Peggy and I were good friends in college and later on. She was one of my best friends and we kept in touch. She was a very giving person and loved animals. I did not know that she had passed away and recently sent her an email for Easter. She did not respond and I did not know why. I came across this on the Internet. Sorry Peggy that I did not know about your passing, I wish we had a chance to get together and enjoy some time together like we used to. We liked to to Pennslyvania to the craft festivals, shopping, and eating out when I visited. That was several years ago but I still I have fond memories of my friendship with her.
