I grew up next door to the McGregor family in a very special neighborhood located along Oak Ridge Lane in North Waco. Peggy was one of the few neighborhood moms who really tolerated all of us mischief-makers, and there were plenty of us! She was indeed a very special lady who I always enjoyed being around. We will miss Peggy McGregor. Rest In Peace!
