Hadnt heard of Pegs passing! Had worked for Peggy a few times at home and in business. She was always willing to help those who were loyal and wanted to help themselves . Strong lady , good friend..tho we didnt always get to visit. I sent Xmas card and called but no returns or acknowledgements. I miss her and our lunches! Always there when I was having a weak moment helped to get my rents paid! Offered to sell me a house and wanted to but had so little help to fix up damages that people and time had upon the place. (New York!) Loved her and spent a couple of summers with my sun hat on tending her garden some, running errands carrying the heavy stuff. Thankful I met her. She trusted me with her stores! Bless her and peace to family, I met a few..grandkids, heard some of others and her Chuck and exchange student or two, her Chuck and an exchange student or two. She is missedmuch.
