  1. Steve and Becky,

    Words are not adequate whenever a loved one has passed on. I just wanted you both to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.

  2. It is with deep sadness to read of Mr. Pegg’s passing. He was our Daddy’s barber for many years (Bill Taylor of Fairview). He was meticulous in giving our Daddy a superb ‘crew cut’, no other barber could match Mr. Pegg’s expertise. May you be comforted in knowing Mr. Pegg is peacefully at rest.

  3. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one.I did not personally know Mr. Pegg, but I work with Coe Ann and I have heard alot of wonderfull things about her Dad. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Coe Ann,

    My thoughts and prayers, and those of your friends in NCASFAA, go out to you in this time of sorrow. May the Lord be a blessing and a comfort to you.
