The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of
Kingsway Arms Nursing Center for their kind and caring
support for Peach over the past few years. In lieu of any donations, and
to honor her memory, Peach's family would be happy if you could take
some time to visit the elderly and lonely in a nursing home or hospital
near you. "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is
this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction." James 1:27.
