Sue, Kathy, Ann, Jim, Bob and David. I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Peg was an amazing woman who's larger than life heart was shared through her work, through her friends and most passionately, through her family. I can't count how many stiches she gave and removed from me. Or how many times she came by our house to help mom and check on us when we were sick. I will forever be grateful for the love, compassion and assistance she gave to mom and dad when they needed it most. She is surely amongst the angels because they have been waiting for this earthbound angel to come to them. I hope you find peace in the knowledge that your mom is now with Uncle Pep and so many loved ones that have prepared a place for her by their sides.

Sue, Kathy, Ann, Jim, Bob and David:
We offer our sincerest condolences to each of you and your families on the passing of your Mom. Please know she was loved, respected and cherished by so many family and friends.
Aunt Peg was to me a second Mom as my Mom was to each of you. Her passing is being felt very deeply, yet I know in my heart that she is reunited with her loving husband (Dearest Uncle Pep), parents and sisters and brothers. She is with so many people we treasure and Mom & Dad, Shirley and Jim.
All our love and may God bless you and grant you a gentle peace in your heart with warm memories of your Mom.
Your loving cousin,
Pat & Bob Guilmette
