  1. My favorite memory of Uncle Lloyd is when I stayed overnight with Larry and we went to pick up Larry’s snowmobile. We rode home in the back of the pickup on the snowmobile. It was the thrill of a lifetime for us!

  2. Peg,
    Our deepest sympathy!
    We always had such a good time in our golf group.
    Our prayers for you and your entire family.

  3. Mike and I will miss the wisdom you shared with us for gardening and golf. You both were always so kind . Prayers for you, Peg ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ™
