Not sure what to say?

love u always aunt Margaret!!!

My thoughts and prayers to all of you. I am a childhood friend of Megan. Thank you Mrs. Basile (thats what I liked to call her) for putting up with Megan and my shenanigans and watching way too many musicals we made you sit through. Say hi to Jesus for me. ❤

Frank, Jim, Megan and Nora . What a shock to hear of Peggy passing. We haven't seen each other in quite some time, but we have such fond and fun memories of our get togethers as couples and as families. We always thought of all of you in the fondest way. Frank, we remember bringing videos to your home to watch together - we scandalized you with "Muriel's Wedding" and "Bull Durham" We had some great times at our "godparents" get-togethers. We are so...

Frank, I am so sorry to learn of Peggy's death. My prayers are with you and your family. I am Class Rep for our Alvernia Class of 1958 and I have notified our fellow classmates of her death. May Our Lord hold you all in the palm of His hand.
