  4. Gordon and Kimberly: I just learned of Peggy’s death this week. I have been mourning the loss all week. Growing up in a small community as Hope, our lives were so intertwined. Peggy and I were Brownies together, we were Rainbow Girls together, we were together in classes throughout the years. We visited each others’ homes. My mother still has a bedroom suite that Red refinished. I still remember Polly’s peanut butter fudge – the best! And I remember going to her wedding shower in Hope. She was so in love with you Gordon! You and Peggy were great role models for all. She with the courage to brave MS so cheerfully. You took such good care of her and were so attentive to her. I am sure you will all miss her greatly.

  5. The best math teacher I ever had at Sharpstown High School! Also was the Keywannette sponsor. When I was Vice President of Keywannettes she took us to the Keywannette convention in San Antonio. I have great memories of that trip. She was well loved by so many of her students. So sorry to hear of her loss. I know she will be missed by many. May she R.I.P.
