Appreciates show of caring and support

I’d like to express my gratitude and appreciation for all of the support for me and my family during the passing of my wife of 24 years, Peggy Sabin.

She won her 12-year battle with Huntington’s Disease and graduated on June 15 by departing this earth to spend eternity in heaven. Because of her decision to invite Jesus Christ to live in her heart, she was excited to spend eternity in heaven with her savior, enjoying the new body that we’re promised in Scripture. Because of this assurance, our family doesn’t dispair at her leaving us at the age of 46 years. We know that this is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning.

I have been immensely blessed through all stages of her disease to be surrounded by a strong support group that helped in practical ways. Family and friends alike received training to be her caregiver and provide personal services to her throughout the entire process. I received the benefits of these services through delicious meals, housecleaning, shuttle service of children, and too many other items to list. The many cards, flowers, prayers, and thoughtful words have been wonderful.

There will be a celebration of her life, open to all, at Kingston Christian Church on July 21 at 3 p.m. There will be a meal to follow for everyone wishing to stay for the reception.

Thank you in advance to all those that are giving of their time and expertise to help us organize and host this celebration.

Ben Sabin
