    We will miss Peggy and her kind and caring ways. Our happy memories of outings and dinners will help to ease the sadness we feel. Her rosaries said for us helped us more than she could have imagined. We know she will be watching over Jan, "Peggy, we will too". We are thankful for her friendship and we'll always smile when we think of her.
