Peggy LaFreniere 1940-2010

We were saddened last week to learn of the passing of our dear friend and saint Peggy LaFreniere.  Many of you may remember her as Peggy Espinda, as she was known before her recent marriage to Paul LaFreniere.

Peggy has long been a passionate defender of preborn children.  She was one of the very first people in Georgia to embrace our work at CBR.   For many years, we counted on Peggy to be a member of our traveling team as we took our GAP project to college campuses all over the country.  In fact, she was always the first person we called, because she was always up for a road trip.  She earned the respect of the students with whom she spoke, because she was both smart and compassionate.  She was a joy for us as well; she never complained about the hard work nor the long hours.

There are many children alive today and families still together because of Peggy’s tireless work.

Peggy, we are much richer for knowing you.  We look forward to seeing you again, in a place where “there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away (Rev. 21:4).”

    Peggy was “one of a kind”. She worked hard and passionately for life. I imagine she is up there visiting right now with all those babies she helped to save! May she rest in peace and may perpetual life shine upon her.

    Peggy has fought the good fight and entered into her eternal reward.
    Eternal rest grant to Peggy O Lord and let perpetual light upon her. May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace AMEN

    I was privileged to share rooms, homes, meals, and car rides with Peggy as we traveled the Southeast with the GAP project. I was always amazed at Peggy’s energy, her laugh, and her profound joy in every day living. She cared passionately about the preborn, their moms and dads, and about injustice. I missed her last week when we were at UGA and UT doing GAP. I am so thankful to the Lord that when we enjoy eternity together, we will not be fighting abortion–Christ has already done that.
