So many memories of growing up in the neighborhood with Scott, Ritchie, Larry, and Archie. We played on the same little league baseball team (The Redlegs) and Mrs. Lawhorne was always in the stands rooting for us. She was such a nice person! My thoughts and prayers are with all the Lawhorne family.

Peggy was my sister-in-law for the past 56 years and I could not have asked for a better one! We had many laughs ….and tears sharing stories about her 4 boys and my two. She was such a role model to me and I will always cherish our friendship. My heart goes out to Royce, Scott, Riche and Archie at this time! Love you all and you are in my prayers!

Aunt Joy was an enormous part of my life and one I will always cherish. She was always so giving and loving and always made time for those she loved. Her passion for gardening, cross-stitch, cooking and collecting cookbooks have had a tremenouds influence on my life. My mom and Aunt Joy were not only sisters but dear friends and were always together. Their bond was so strong and inspriational to all who knew them. She was loved dearly and will be missed by all who loved her.
