We have talked and shared stories today about how strong, protective and sassy Peggy was. We have a lifetime of memories of her fun loving spirit. This quote depicts the great sadness that we are all feeling in our hearts today: “Mom/Grandma always taught us to be strong, because she knew that one day we would need the strength to bear her loss”.
