Dear cousins Jean, Sharon, Ron and Larry, and family I want you to know your sorrow is recognized and we miss Peggy greatly with you. Let the great memories of Peggy flood over us and bring some smiles to our faces in these hard times of loss. What great memories are brought back. So even in this sadness comes goodness of recognizing how blessed we are to have had her in our lives. She was strong, humble, gracious, hospitable, caring and she gave birth to some great cousins and beyond through the grandchildren and more!
