Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Family,Peggy and I spent much time together as young girls in the country in Carlyss. Your mother lived on the corner and I lived down the road. I knew Jim and visited them several times in Lake Charles. I also met some of you. She and my mother, Alice Todd, were very close after her mother died. I am sorry I lost contact. I hope you will cherish your memories.Sincerely, Helen Wild

  2. I always enjoyed talking to Peggie with her soft voice and gentle ways.She always put on her best face and tried to encourge me when i was down.I will miss calling her.Peggie may God Bless you and Welcome you Home…Love to all….jack…

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Peggie in 2002 at her beautiful home in Lake Charles. I really enjoyed hearing a story she told about a famous artist that was commissioned to complete paintings of the house and grounds. I really appreciated her hospitality and how welcome she made me feel during my visit. I know she will be greatly missed.

  4. Jim Family:Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Rosamond, Mike and all of your families during the loss of your Mother. I remember so well our growing up right down the street from each other. Your Mother was always such a wonderful lady and always made us feel at home. It was so good seeing you at the Class Reunion. May God Bless and Keep You All. You are in my prayers.

  5. Rebecca and girls,I am so sorry to hear about your Grandmother. I know you were very close and will miss her terribly. I wish I had gotten to meet her. Love, Judith

  6. We met Mrs. Milam and her husband who were great customers of Steve's store on Lake Street. Later, after the store was sold, we would go to her magnificent house and visit with her. She was an humbled woman and loved to smile and laugh. We enjoyed all our visits with her. We talked about going by about 2 weeks ago, and now realized we should have acted on our wishes. We only met one grandaughter, but I know she loved her family. We send our sincere sympathy and know that she is in heaven smiling down at us! Steve and Ginger Basone'
