Mrs. Peacock has a special place in my heart, I spent many nights at her house. I visited her several times over the years and I love her and Diane so very much.


So sorry to hear about your loss.

You have my deepest sympathy. It's sad, but we've all had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in Jehovah God's (Psalms 83:18) promises like found here at Psalm 34: 18 and it tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit."
