My heartfelt condolences to Pepper's loved ones and close friends. Pepper traveled to Binghamton every year for the Jim "Mudcat" Grant All Star tournament and through my association with the tournament I spent a great deal of time with her. She had a kind heart, a strong wit, and I will miss her very much. She couldn't make it this past September due to her failing health and was greatly missed. We had a wonderful time with her last year and I will treasure the moments of the years we had with her forever. Truly saddened.
