I was very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother Peggy, I had only meet her once, but it was as if I had meet her before. She had taken me to South Shore plaza as she had just left her work and my aunt Mary (Shannon) was taking the next shift. We chatted the whole way there. I will treasure that memory. R. I. P. Peggy. What a beautiful lady you were. Condolences to your family.
