    I’m sorry to read of your Mom’s passing. My Mom’s been gone for over 8 years & I still talk to her often. No one can take the place of your Mom.

    To Donald, Carliss and the entire Sanches family, I was very sorry to hear that your mother passed away. I remember going to her house and visiting and also going to her restaurant to have some delicious food. Wishing you all the best in your time of sorrow. Love y’all, Gail

    Aunt Peggy was warm and welcoming. She had a keen sense of humor, a beautiful smile, and a special way of letting you know you were her family. She is gone before us. Our world seems a lesser place, although our lives were blessed to have been touched by hers. Lord, she is yours.

    Loved that Peggy! We go back a long way to her daughter Lynell and Roxie’s antics and Fred and Gary’s little league games. We also loved watching Brian play baseball. Just loved the whole family even her PNG brothers!! ????
