Peggy was a big part of my life. Many memories coming back as I write this. She made sure I went on my senior trip to New York City. Told be about sex before my wedding. Pierced my ears with a needle and an ice cube. Taught me to pull my bathing suit down getting out of the pool. That XXX meant confectioners sugar. Took me to church. I could go on and on she was my big sister.

She knew me when I was a child. Taught me many things to set the table “correctly”, put on makeup, get to school (warm & dry) when she was driving Curtis...took me to ceramics with her...too many holiday & birthdays to discuss...she was known as Peggy back then...but regardless of her name she always smelled like a rose to me. I still love her so...
