Dear Charles,
it is very difficult to put in words how very sorry I am for the loss in my dearly beloved american family.
Even though it´s been so many years I haven´t seen you, I will always keep in mind the wonderful memories I have. Always remembering you as the best host family one could have.
Peggy was such a wonderful, loving and sweet lady.
My prayers are with you and your family!
I love y´all,
Carolin

Peggy and I worked at Barnes and Noble together for 16 years together and have known each other for 20. She taught me a lot. She loved her romance novels. She loved her family. There was not a day she didn't have a story about her granddaughters or children, but most of all Charles. I can best describe her as a feisty pitbull. She will be missed. God bless her family during these times.

There are not enough words to describe my mom or even to say how much I loved her and what she meant to me. She has always been my best friend and my hero. The biggest compliment in my life is for someone to say I am like my mom. I miss you every second of every day!!!
