    We miss Ms. Pepper. We got to know her during our monthly deliveries with Meals on Wheels. She would see my 7 year old and light up. She always had chocolate or a treat nearby that she wanted to share. My son still remembers her every time we go to Honeybee Lane. Her fun and loving spirit stays with us. We had family pass near the same time (grandmother and father) which is why we are only finding out about her passing now. We have asked for months ...since Dec 2019. I'm so sorry for your family's loss but am glad to have known such a wonderful woman. God bless you all!!
