I loved her so much; my Peggy memories keep me laughing and crying simultaneously. What an honor to have known this incredible person. My heart is aching over the loss of my dear friend.

    Though I didn’t get to know her well, Peggy was a bright and beautiful soul; that was obvious from the moment I met her. I knew that she was an incredible woman just from getting to know her daughter Merideth so well. What a beautiful legacy she has left behind. My deepest condolences to her family.
