  1. I was one of Peggys best friends in high school and wanted to extend my sincere condolances to the Differding family. Mrs Differding was such a kind and gentle person and was always so nice to me. I ran into her recently at one of her appts and we had a really nice talk. I know that she is up in heaven with Peggy now. RIP Mrs Differding.

  2. Saint Louis MOScott: Deep sympathy but resurrection comfort to you and your family at your Mom’s passing. Thanksgiving can even inform a day such as this. Give thanks to God for a Jesus-loving mother who passed on to you the heritage of faith. Faith in Jesus speaks a definitive word about death and new life. “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law. But thanks be to God, he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Your Mom has been given the victory she has passed through death to new life. Be encouraged by such assurance for what lies ahead for you. The best is yet to be.


  3. Please accept my sincere condolences. Who can best comfort us in our time of grief? Our heavenly Father who created us has the desire and the ability to reunite us with our loved one … John 5:28, 29. May this sure promise strengthen and comfort you during the days ahead.

  4. Dalton MnDear Uncle Jerome
    We are so so sorry to hear of your loss. We wish there were more that we could do. Please know that you and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers. We feel so fortunate to have that visit with you and Vickie and really got the sense that she was very confident and settled in her decisions, so we just thank God for her peace and example to us in such a trying time. We will always remember her bright eyes and big smiles.
    Ron and Denise.

  5. Moorhead Minnesota
    I have very fond memories of hanging a Differding house and many sleep overs with Peggy. Vicki was a lovely lady and will be missed. My deepest sympathy.

  6. Fargo ND
    All my condolences to the Differding Family. I have very fond memories of Mrs. Differding, while growing up around the “old” Carl Ben. She would always welcome us kids into the house, without blinking an eye. Skates or no skates. My prayers for the entire family, and to my good friend Scott.

  7. Detroit MIMy condolences to the Differding family. Matthew 5:4 says: Happy are those who mourn since they will be comfort. This may sound strange since you are mourning now but soon when God bring back to life and health all those in his memory because he love you and care, you will be happy seeing your loved one again doing what she loved and you enjoying her again. Please find some strength and comfort, in your days ahead.
