I had the pleasure of knowing Peggy for around 5 years, and she was the sweetest woman to me. She had that wonderful soft, southern style voice, which just resonated friendliness to you. My heartfelt condolences and prayers go to her husband Dave and their family. Your friends at the BK are here for you Dave. God bless, Kyle Matlack

My heart is broken as I called to talk to Aunt Peggie only for Uncle Dave to give me the sad news. She was always my Aunt Peggie since I was a little girl. Her and my mother Edythe Walker were best of friends and my mother had the honor of standing with her when she married the love of her life, Uncle Dave. I will miss our emails, phone chats & Christmas Card exchange. She brought a smile to all she knew. Sending love and hugs to the entire family.
