In Memory of Peggy

The Final Call Came

In memory of my sister Peggy who died in March of 2012

Peggy’s daughter Beth called this morning to let me know that Peggy had left the Baptist Hospice House for the home prepared for her in glory. The stick people did not come, she knew her loved ones to the very final moments, praise God for keeping the stick people away. Peggy leaves a lovely family, wonderful life, and many blessings planted in the lives of others. She was a faithful wife, mother, and child of the King. Her presence will be missed in the lives of those of First Baptist Church in Tupelo where for all of these many years she has served as Librarian. No way to count the thousands of books she has put into the hands of others as she served her Lord in His calling. With these she touched their lives and with herself she served her Lord. Peggy brings to a close the list of my sisters and now the Raley’s of Lindsey Street are down to one. My memories of our young years are warm and wonderful and my thanksgiving to my Lord for allowing me to visit with her last Wednesday overflows. We remembered the young years, prayed over the current years, and promised to see one another in the coming years.

I love you Peggy, see you in glory, thanks for all the moments. Tell the 246 South Lindsey Street group, Hello.
