    Dear Tracy and Shannon, Bob and I were so sad to see your mother's obituary this morning. She loved you girls with all of her heart and lived to be your mother. I have many wonderful memories of y'al at North Chase when you first moved to Wilmington. Peggy never ceased to amaze me with her courage and her love for her girls and for life. She was truly a wonderful person and this world will feel her absence. But she will live on in your hearts and the hearts of everyone that she touched. I know that she is in Heaven with that BIG BEAUTIFUL smile. We will unfortunately be out of town for her memorial service so please give our condolences to Doug and your entire family. May God be with you all and bless you with the peace of the Holy Spirit. With much love, Carla and Bob Schiffel
