Dear Campaign Friends:

I have just learned that one of my most devoted and loyal supporters and volunteers, Peggy Erickson, has passed away. Peggy lived in Minnesota and is well known to the “inner circle” of supporters from the campaign. Peggy gave countless hours of service to our effort—making calls, emailing, working social media as effectively as anyone I’ve known, and just being one of the most solid encouragers I’ve ever known.

In the circle of our team, we are like family. While there are always the hateful trolls who post mean, vile, and absurd things, such drivel is overshadowed by the gracious and kind servants of heaven who love God, their country, and their families. Peggy was such a person who gave us all an example of being a true lady and the picture of class.

Janet and I, along with our entire family and our team of both staff and volunteers from the campaign, mourn her death, but we celebrate “a life well lived.” Our prayers go out to her wonderful family. We loved Peggy and we will miss her.

Mike Huckabee

    I will miss Peggy and all the rather intellectual conversations we shared and the blog we once shared. She loved to write and did a great job. She was one of Mike Huckabee's most loyal supporters from the start. We prayed together just before Mike's announcement on television that he would not run for president in 2012. We cried together. But we had the "peace that passes understanding" about it because he did. I know her desire to see him as a future President of the United States lives on, and if not that, she would pray for whatever contribution he may make to the future of a great and free America. And to the cause of Jesus Christ above all.
