I don't even know where to begin. When I found out about this news today, I just broke down and cried like a baby. Cried because of the awesome memories that I have with Mom Peggy's oldest daughter Peggy and the pain that I know my dear friend is feeling, I can't even imagine. Cried because of such an amazing woman leaving this earth, a woman that was so kind and loving but also tough as nails, especially when she was on a mission to find any of us kids where we weren't supposed to be, doing things we weren't supposed to be doing. Cried because Amanda, Catherine, & Tiffany's children have lost one of the best Grandmas around. Cried because your Dad lost his love & partner. Just such a tremendous loss. I haven't seen all of you girls in awhile but please know that I love you all and I am giving you the biggest hug right now. If I would've known before today, I would've driven the distance to be at the service. I apologize that I wasn't there. If any of you need anything, I am here, today, tomorrow, or anytime in the future. Love always, your friend Cory

Ed and I are very sorry to hear of this. We both met her as a substitute teacher in school and then got to know her even better as we became friends with her daughter Peggy. Our hearts go out to each of you as you deal with this loss. Your family will be in our prayers.

Wow! I guess it was my loss not to have met your Mama, Amanda. I just read 15 pages of heartfelt love and admiration. Not everyone will leave a legacy of love. Every person who wrote in commented in her gentle ways and the love she bestowed on them. How wonderful. The greater the love the greater the loss. Thinking of you. Hugs and love.

Allan, Peggy, Amanda, Catherine, Tiffany, DJ, Cathy, Dad, and all of those close/related to the Dupees: You have been in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. We're so sorry that we were not at the services today. Aunt Peggy will be greatly missed. We will remember her as she always was: happy, fun-loving, and full of great advice. She was an inspiration to all who knew her and will continue to be from above. Love, JD, Cassie, and Sierra

Thank you Peggy. Thanks to you, your daughters have blossomed into amazing women in their own rights... loyal friends, teachers, leaders, healers, mothers and wives; your influence continues on through them. Thanks for being generous with your advice and guidance, especially with those of us who lost our own mothers years ago... your wisdom helped me make some difficult life decisions with the bigger picture in mind. And thank you for your good works with the girls of troop 61000. You made that troop a sanctuary where every girl (and parent) felt welcomed, loved, accomplished and necessary. There was never any drama, clicks, separatism, or hurt feelings. A troop full of strong willed 5-7 years olds... HOW did you do it? I wish I had payed better attention! I'm so very thankful that my daughter and I had the opportunity to know you. I'm so sorry I didn't have the chance to say good bye in person and to let you know that you're one of the most decent human beings I've ever met. I have enjoyed every conversation, every joke, every encounter we shared, without exception. We miss you. I miss you. Madison and I will do our best to pass on what we learned from you and try to live by the many positive examples you've set. Rest in peace sweet lady.
