"I'm Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines
I feed my horse on corn and beans,
And often live beyond my means
Tho' a Captain in the Army."

I remember fondly a trip to P.S. 42, courtesy of "Aunt" Peggy (my mom's 1st cousin). I think I was a H.S. Freshman. She heard I was interested in becoming a teacher, and wanted to nurture that in me. I had a Catholic Holy Day off, so she invited me to spend it with her. I had a lot of interesting experiences, but what made the biggest impression on me was this: a little girl had left the school building...teachers and staff were worried about her, outside, in the winter weather, likely without a coat. Aunt Peggy said she knew where on the beach to find her, so she went out and did so, bringing her back to school, and helping her deal with whatever it was that had set her off. I'd always loved and liked Aunt Peggy, but I was VERY PROUD of her that day!

Rest in Peace Aunt Peggy! Glad some of the cousins could be with you in your final days.

My deepest sympathies on the loss of Aunt Peggy. She was such a warm and kind woman who always made me feel like one of the family. My heart breaks knowing how much you will all miss her, but I know how much she enriched your lives and that memories of Aunt Peggy will always make you smile and fill you with love.

Mrs. Ahern championed my playing the piano for the school assembly every Wednesday morning at PS 42...starting when I was in Kindergarten! I remember her fondly and am happy to know she lived a full life and died peacefully.
