Some of the older children of Peg's may remember my brother, Delmont Pfeiffer who attended most of the family functions of years past when your father and mother were first married and had the older children. again our sympathy to your family. You have lost a true friend to many.

Words cannot express the love and respect we have for this lady. Her smile and laugh were contagious. She was the answer to our prayer when we needed a care giver for our mom, Annette Tate. Peg treated her like a member of the Malcolm Family. I know without a doubt that heaven got another angel. God bless you Peg. Rest in peace.
