    My love and prayers to the family for their loss. I had the pleasure of living across the street from the Deese's for many years. A wonderful couple who brought joy to all who knew them. Their faith was contagious. Their love for each other inspirational. Peggy will be missed but we can be comforted in knowing that she has been reunited with her husband, son, and daughter and basking in the light of Jesus..
