Peggy Campbell was my best friend.
She had been a foster mom and care
giver.
Some one stupid went on the side of
the road and took her life.
Now her family and friends will
miss her.

Peggy Campbell was a relative by marriage. We haven't seen her since before we moved out of state. She will be greatly missed by all of the people she helped and kids she fostered over the years. What a shame. Our thoughts are with Dick also.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your best friend! Our prayers are with her husband, family and friends to find God's comfort in such a sorrowful time. We're also praying that God's grace will help heal everyone involved: physically, mentally and spiritually!
I'm not sure if knowing this will ease the pain you feel from such a tragic loss, but the young man that was driving the vehicle that drifted across the yellow lines is truly a kind person and would never want to hurt anyone! He is the type of young man any mother would be proud to have her daughter bring home to meet the family.

This is truly a tragedy for all parties involved. May God bring peace to the hearts of Peggy's family and friends, and allow them to heal and remember her as the wonderful person she surely was. Please know that the young man involved is a kind, gentle person and now must live with this burden for the rest of his life. Let us not cast judgement and throw stones as a result of our pain- one never fully knows the burden which is carried by others.

I understand he is young and he regrets that day, peggy was a foster mom for years and adopted kids and she was a mom and grandmother, but her family now wait to see if thier father makes it. I miss my best friend and only time can heal the pain.
I am sorry for every one involved. Pam

Yes he may be a great kid but what about the greatness of my mother???
She left behind 4 kids 6 grandchildren one of them only being 1 1/2 and a great grandchild she never got to see but in pictures.
How do you think we feel, my dad fighting for his life, and the boy walks away with bumps and bruises?
We can never have any of the things we shared back and this has truly affected and shattered our lives.
And all you can talk about is how great the other kid is.
My parents are great and my mother , words cant even describe how fantastic she really was.
Hurt??? Hurt doesn't describe our lose in anyway.
Hurt is just the beginning, it will never go away.
That day is plastered in my mind like it was yesterday and I live it over and over each day.
The best anyone can say is he just crossed the line..
Who was the 14 yr old with him?
Friend? girlfriend?
Was he on a cell phone? Not paying attention.?
You dont just drift across the yellow lines and say oopps sorry for your lose.
I cant say anymore right now but I will comment more later......

as for the comment about the first heading and if any one has a problim with other peoples feelings then get over it because its the truth. Im not blurting Im speaking from the heart Ive had one mother taken from me when i was a teenager and now a motherenlaw. you say im blurting I say NO!! I speak from the heart. I dont care how good of a kid he was. He was wreckless and irresponsible and that killed my mothernlaw. you say he is a great and wonderful kid well you can keep him close and cherish him because now i have no mother or motherenlaw to cherish or turn to for advise or comfort anymore and now I have to keep my motherenlaw in a box where i can never see her smile,cry or here her voice ever again. I hope you all are happy and proud of this so called good kid..

I do feel really bad for them. I did live with her for 6 years, she let me join basketball, track & got me braces. She was very strict & she meant well. I had a troubled life, I wish the family well. I will cherish the memories of camping, & the family trip to Disneyland. God bless her & the rest of the family.

There were other trips also. I will always remember the fun times in Oakdale with all the animals too. I do send my best to the family. I am sorry for to hear about this tragedy. I do agree the title is a bit harsh.

McCorkle you are heartless based on what you have said about the driver, so how are you speaking from your heart? Grow up and have some compassion, the driver was not acting irresponsible.

Grow up you say!!!!!!!!!!
Are you without a MOM or is your father fighting for his life due to someone elses NEGLEGENCE?
Are you now going to raise her 15 yr old daughter? Can u take her place with her 6 grand kids that don't understand why there grandma is gone and there grandfather can't be here with them because someone wasn't paying attention to the ROAD!!!!!!
HEARTLESS You say !!!
I think me and my family has the right to be at the moment don't you?
Unless you are living what I am going through you have no right to say anything..
Walk a mile in my shoes and then tell me I don't have the right to feel this way.
If you dont like what we have to say then stop looking at it..
Its our life not yours. Your life isn't the one that got shattered in this.
Wether you want to hear it or not, Ryan was at FAULT wether he is/was a good kid or not.
Fact is none of the sorries bring back my Mom and take back my Dad fighting for his life.
When you can change those things then you have the right to call me and my husband heartless.....
Until then or unless your living what I feel right now or even know what me and my family are going through SHUT UP

Please know that your mom was taken by God in his perfect timing.It was Jesus who lifted this lovely women to her heavenly home. Her job was complete here on earth was complete. Her compasion and love for others has touched many. She is watching over you with perfect vision now. May your family and loved ones feel her presence of love. I'm sure she would want that.

Prayers for all involved. This accident has been on my heart ever since it happened. Know that all on the scene were respectful of the tragedy and you mom. I don't know any of you, but still I feel connected. Your family is in my heart.
