Peggy was one of a kind. Peggy talked of her children many many times. She was always so very appreciated of everything we did for her. Peggy always asked what she could do for me and if I was doing ok. She was always concerned about everyone else, other than herself. Peggy always had a smile and a wink for us. She is and will be missed dearly. She'll always be in my heart.
