Dear Steve and Katie,
I will always have a place in my heart where Peggy will be. She was a good and kind friend and I will miss her very much. She enriched the lives of so many people with her quiet, caring way. Although our friendship was much too brief I will always be grateful for the time I had with her. I pray that your memories of her will stay with you and comfort you in the days ahead.
