  1. I knew your mom Peg when I was a young fella back in the 50’s when I spent my summers and weekends at my Grandparents farm, the McKinney’s. We use to sleep overnight many times in the barn down by the pond and your mom made us breakfast in the mornings with your dad. Mrs. McBride was a wonderful, kind loving lady who always treated us well and made sure we had plenty to eat. Your dad taught me to drive the old Ford Dump Truck when we combined wheat back then. I am sure they are once again together in Gods loving arms, and she will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

  2. Linda, Mike, Dave and Family:

    Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your grandmother. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

    Judge J. Craig Cox, Brenda, Dan, Dianna and Christian
