We were great friends in high school. Peggy, Carrie and I sang together in a trio. A music teache,r Sr Claudia, used to book us for various events that we sang for. It was a good times. Peggy was so outgoing and I was shy so she was a good match for me.. I loved being around her and hanging out After high school we kind of went separate directions and I lost track of her. That was my loss but I thought of her often. Rest in peace Peggy!

I met Peggy at the U of M Hospital when she was a nurse's aide in 1968. She would go about her day singing Janis Joplin songs as she worked. The patients loved it. I was with Peggy in Jamaica the year she met Bing. We went to lots of live music and dance concerts together over the years. I have so many great memories. I miss my friend Peggy.
