It is with sadness that we say goodbye, It is with relief that there will be no more pain, It is with joy that we think about our cherished memories, It is with pride that we are left with the gifts of a life well lived. It is with God we trust with his plan, and It is with family and friends that we know Peggy will be looking proudly over as they are her living legacy of love, faith, and family.

I know I didn't know you or your family, but your story surfaced on twitter. It made me cry & really put life into perspective. I could tell you had the same relationship with your daughter, as my mom has with me & it made me smile. I could also tell that you were such a good mother, & person in general. You've made an impact. Rest in Paradise, much love.

Grief at times can be unbearable, but then as I think of my sister and start to remember all the memories that we shared growing up together and starting our families it brings me a small sense of relieve to something I cannot make sense of, all I do know for sure is that heaven gained a beautiful soul that will forever be in our hearts Sam and Tammy.
