Oh Peggy, so hard to think of life without you in it. I've been so blessed to be extended family, Aunt Sharon to your kids and grandkids. You have been a friend and more so, a sister to me for so many years. I'm so sorry that my health has kept me from spending the time I would have loved with you these last years but I'll never forget my last visit with you when I asked you if you knew who I was and you softly said "I know the voice." I cherish those last words to me and I'll see you in Heaven when it's my time to go. I love you sweet sister/girlfriend.
