By Bruce and Peggy Jeffries,, Columbia

We recently received the tragic news that Peggy's brother, Edward (Edd) Clayton Watts, had died as a result of untreated PTSD. He was seven years younger than Peggy. He leaves behind two children and several grandchildren. On November 13, Bruce will be giving an organ recital at the church their son, Pastor Nathan Jeffries, pastors in Oblong, Illinois. It will help provide some seed money for a new ministry that will be starting in that church and community. It also will give us the opportunity to spoil our grandson, Lucas.

Bruce is serving as Music Director at Lenoir Woods Retirement Community, playing for two services each week, directing the Vespers Choir, composing, and working with the Chaplain and the Vespers Committee. Peggy is working to strengthen her body with the wellness personnel here at Lenoir and enjoys communicating with folks on Facebook.
