There are just no words for the sadness I felt when I learned that Peggy passed away. Peggy was a wonderful light no matter where she was - such a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. I always felt like she was my biggest fan - always laughing at silly things I said. Tom and I loved spending time with her and of course with Tim and Paul. She was such a true example of how to enjoy life - appreciating the small things. Sending loving prayer and much love to Tim, Paul and their families - I hope all the beautiful memories help you through this most difficult time.

What can I say, I have so many fond memories of Aunt Peggy. She was so fantastic and wow an amazing cook. Aunt Peggy always made you feel at home. We used to go over to her house quite often to see them and had so much fun as kids playing at their house in Yorktown. I remember she seemed to laugh all the time. Uncle Brian and Aunt Peggy were such an awesome couple. I wish we could have spent more time with them. They are together in heaven now and at peace. Our Condolences go out to Tim and Paul two kids, now men with their own families, raised buy a super mom.

Aunt Peggy had one of the kindest souls I have ever met. She was so good to my family. When I first went back to work and was in desperate need of a babysitter she jumped at the chance to watch Marisa! For that we are forever grateful. I remember when I was younger and we would go to Yorktown for family get togethers and Aunt Peggy would make her baked ziti. I would tell my Mom how delicious it was. I think my Mom- being the cook that she was felt a little slighted. Anyhow years later I found out that my mom had asked Aunt Peggy what her secret was and Aunt Peggy told her it was Ragu sauce!! Heaven has received an Angel! Love you Aunt Peggy.

Back in the day, I loved going with "Nana" to visit my nearby cousins in Yorktown. Aunt Peggy was always so cheerful that she made you happy too!. I remember having Thanksgiving with Aunt Peggy one year when I was still fairly young. She served a "Butterball" turkey. I still remember thinking how delicious it was. I will remember her laughter-so distinctive, so infectious, so happy. RIP Aunt Peggy. Love, Maggie
