Dan and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Peggy well, as she had moved to the Ozarks by the time I moved back to KC. I do remember seeing her occasionally and I know how much she meant to you. Praying for your family during this time.

Peggy always had a smile for me and great conversation. I thank you for loving my daughters and grandchildren. She would say "come visit anytime" and she meant it! I will miss you so much, but know I have gained another guardian angel looking down and keeping me safe. Hugs.
