Aunt Peggy was a kind and gentle woman who I loved very much. A fond memory I have is when she gifted me a brown fabric purse that had fringe falling off it when I was a young teenager. It was the style at that time and I could only dream of having one. I felt she really knew me and saw me. That’s the kind of person she was. May you rest in peace Aunt Peggy. I love you dearly.
