ADD A MEMORY
WARREN WARD

Mom actually chronicled her life by sharing stories, in her own way, of how she saw her family - with humor.

At each visit by anyone, Mom would share stories, and before she could finish the last two sentences, she would burst out laughing so hard, she could not finish the story, but this would set off a roomful of hysterical laughter, and few listeners knew the ending

For example, if the story was about me (and it was always someone present), she would often tell the story of my first dog, "sparky". Because she laughed so hard, no one knew the story, unless you asked someone who DID know the story.

Everyone in the family, Ward or Music, has a story told in hysterical laughter.

Peggy was one of a kind. She was supportive, kind, funny, sweet, smart, stubborn, & loving. I'm thankful for being able to spend quite a bit of time with her & I miss her deeply. Rest in peace, dear Peggy.

My favorite memory is my whole life. Having an Aunt who loved her nieces and nephews. In the last 9 years we have messaged each other on Facebook and spent Thanksgiving. Together and I had a place to go when I needed me time. I think what stands out in my mind are the family get togethers. Her beautiful watermelon basket, anything she cooked and most of all the hugs! Thank you Aunt Peggy for your love, encouragement and understanding. I'm going to miss our chats. I love you bunches. I'm going to miss you so much.
