    Dear Turner and Family,
    From the very first day I met Peggy Sue at our COEM practice she was a ray of sunshine. You wouldn’t had know through her sweet smile that she was fighting a battle of her own. I will always hold her in the highest regard. I will never forget her. May our dear Lord bring you and your family His peace and comfort in days ahead. You are in my thoughts and prayers For we know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord . And one day we will meet again and to embrace her sweet smile. You have my deepest sympathy, Cathy Schiffiano
