Deepest sympathy to Aunt Peg’s family. I didn’t realize she was 98 years old. My parents Jack and Vivian Randall, always enjoyed times spent with Uncle Chuck and Aunt Peg. My mom resides in Bethany Gardens, Rome, NY and will be 91 in December. I’m sorry that I am not able to attend services, as I live in Stuart, Florida now.
