There are many memories of her. Overriding all of them is Aunt Peggy's strength, as well as, her gracefulness in body, mind, and in her association with others. Aunt Peggy always expressed sweet wisdom. In so many ways and to so many people, she was a model of a good woman doing good things and a woman who found her own success in multiple ways. I am grateful that she was a part of my life.
I'm so sorry for your loss, that loss you feel. I frequently remember my mother as you will yours. The love never goes away.
