Our deepest sympathy to all the family and friends and adopted families. Peg and Bink were such a part of Schooley's Mountain and had many friends during their time with the firehouse and church. We heard of so many parties and get-to-gethers and always a good time was had by all. She was always interested in what you were doing and enjoyed the young people. God Bless, Ron & Barbara
