To my caring and loving sister who I will miss greatly. We never got to meet in person but we got to talk a lot online. I could tell you anything and you'd have the right answer. My whole life I knew I had sisters out there, and all I ever wanted was to have a sister to grow up with. I never got that choice. But in my later years you and Lori found me. And we all became friends and sisters. I wished I could have had time to see you and meet you. In the beginning it was because my daughter's health was so bad I couldn't go anywhere with her. And then with covid things got worse. But I thought this spring is going to be the time where we all could meet. Cancer took that from me and I'm so angry at cancer. I so badly want to be there but I can't take the chance of bringing home any form of covid or flu or pneumonia to my daughter who is special needs. And I'll be 67 in March and driving that distance from West Virginia is hard. So Peggy what I want to tell you is you were a great sister and will still be a great sister. I love you and I miss you so much. God bless and I'll see you on the other side. Take care of my son he's there his name is Kolby.

Peg, I will always remember you with a smile. Particularly the memory of you blasting through our back screen door. Not once. Not twice but three times! May have even been four. Not sure cause we were laughing too hard. :) I hope that memory helps your family to smile during this difficult time. You will be missed.

Peggy (sis) , I am so heart broken I will never get to meet you in person. But these last couple years us talking and texting , made my day. I will so miss you. Thank you for coming into my life. You were a treasure with kind and honest words. You enjoyed watching the videos I sent of my daughter. Thank for making her happy. I always wanted a sister and God gave me more than one. My only relief is that you are no longer in pain. Everyone who knew Peggy was blessed, I was one of them. I hope when my day comes I have her strength and courage as she did. To her family and friends in Pa my deepest sympathy. God Bless.
