Peggy was the best sister-in-law. Her example of love of human kind was easy for all to see and enjoy. I will remember and miss her example of how to live a great life for her self and especially others.

Aunt Peggy was the best aunt I could have in my life. She remembered every birthday and every important event in my life. Sunday morning breakfast was the best. Aunt Peggy made the best homemade biscuits. I will miss her with all my heart. She was a sweet Angel on earth and now a sweet Angel in heaven.
