Peggy Patterson was that giving, generous, kind soul. Ive known her and her family since 1982. She was like a mom to me being that Dalicia and I became best friends, the kind of best friends that lasts for life. Peggy use to say Dalicia and I are sisters. I loved the way she would call you Lovey and just made me always feel loved. Dalicia and her parents took me under their wings when I moved there. Thats just the kind souls that they are. I love you and Im incredibly sorry for her loss.

Aunt Peg was one of the sweetest, caring and loving person I have ever known. She will be missed dearly by her family and many friends. Heartfelt condolences to my Patterson family...it has been a tough couple of months for us. May she rest in peace and the family be comforted in the knowledge that she is again with her loved ones that have gone on to heaven before her.
