Peggie, I was so sorry to hear about Roger's death. Such a tragic way to lose a loved one. I can understand a little of what you are going through because my mother was killed in a car wreck, I have no idea how it would feel if Fred had been killed like that.
I have been praying for you ever since I heard. I was out of town Friday and was unable to attend his service. I don't have your address or I would send you a card and a note.
I love you and miss you being in Garber.
Love and prayers, Fredys
