I am so sorry to hear of Peg's passing. We had such a good chat a few weeks ago and she shared how much she enjoyed her birthday party.
We have been friends since training and had so much fun. I have so many memories of the time we four girls roomed together. John, I bet you remember Peg, Julene and I , invading you home for many meals.
Your family will be in my prayers.
With sympathy,
Julia Carter Berry

Peg was my friend for over 40 years. Her friendship was a gift I will treasure with happy thoughts and fond memories in my heart. I know she is in the loving care of her God. My deepest sympathy to her family.
