Oh, my, I am so sorry and send my sincere condolences to Peggy's family. I know she has had a rough road to travel in recent years. I remember her fondly from HSHS Class of '62, but more so as the cashier at Mike's grocery for many years when my family lived just down the street from there and made many runs to the store and to see her sweet smile and attitude. She will be missed, we all know.

So sorry to hear of Mrs. Baldwin's passing, she was a remarkable person. She always gave so much of herself in everyway. It was such a pleasure to know her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and may your memories bring you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
God bless you and keep you all in his tender care. You now have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
