To the family of Peg White, I was so saddened when I heard of Peg passing away. I remember all of the good times we all use to have us kids growing up on 5th street and playing ball or whatever and Peg always had a kind word to say to all of us kids. She used to say funny things and Id try to remember them and she would say to me, "Havent you ever heard of that?" I remember the last time I seen her at the clinic I went up to her and told her who I was and wished her well. She thanked me and im so glad I went over to talk to her. She will be greatly missed, but she is no longer hurting and will be in a better place. My sympathy goes out to all of the family. Sincerely Jeff R. Moran27

So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. She was always such a sweet soul when she worked at Canteen and later when we attended the same church. Peg always had a smile and a kind comment. I will always remember her for her kindness and smile! Blessings to you all as you heal from your loss.

To Pegs family, I wanted you all to know as I had forgotten to put in my comments before, Your mom always told me that after Thanksgiving meal was over in the evening it was time to put up your Christmas decorations. I did that at her advise Many, Many Years after I had moved out of the house to live by myself. Peg is already probably in the middle of putting up all bright lights and stars in heaven now to celebrate Christmas. She always told me when my favorite country lady singers were on tv or if she seen where they were going to be at. She told me all about getting the EEBIE-JEEBIES, saying to me haven't you ever had them???There are so Many fond memories of old 5th street memories, I would like for all of of kids to get together sometime if we all could, you 4 scott , me and nick just to talk over old things, get a hold of me and we will do this, God Bless Each and Everyone of yous.
