I will always remember how kind Peggy and Warren were to my mother Mary Hodgen. Every Sunday they came to my mother''''''''s home to serve her communion and to visit. This meant a great deal to my Mother as she could no longer attend Mass. I know she will be missed at St. Mary''''''''s as she was a true example of faith in action.
