So sorry to learn of your loss, Margaret and family. My heart goes out to you. Prayers for the Lord to hold you in his arms and comfort you.

There are many things to remember Peg for - her spunk, her intelligence, her interests, and her cooking to name a few. I still have and use the recipe cards she made for her kids (and me) and my four kids still put up the Christmas stocking that she knit for them when they were babies. But my favorite thing about Peg was that she included me in her family...along with everyone else. For that, I am eternally grateful. Rest in peace, Peg...you will not be forgotten.
