    So sorry for the loss of such a tremendous person. I have very fond memories of the visits I had with Aunt Peggy as a youth when we visited. The impact she had on me was encouragement to go after whatever I pursued in life full out. She just exuded the idea that life should be enjoyed and lived with gusto and without regrets.
