Aunt Peggy was a strong woman, before strong women were truly respected. I'll never forget how she could play cards with a group of men, whether it was Rook or Pete, and always hold her own! Whenever you first saw her, she always had a kind word to say, and make you feel good about yourself and being in her presence. Her kindness will never be forgotten!
