    So very sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing and the void being felt nw by family & friends. The void is but a second in time that will be replaced by all the beautiful memories Peggy created with her family & friends over the years. Always a smile on her face and an open heart to all. Peggy has earned her wings and is flying in the most glorious of places and ever present as a guardian angel for her family. Peggy ~ a life most beautifully lived!
