The best grandma anyone could ask for – lots of memories visiting her in Three Lakes and it was so special taking my son – we shared a love of animals and she could always make me laugh – she will be missed tremendously

My deepest sympathy my prayers are with you

During my move back to Mass. from Colorado, my mom and I stopped to visit. When we left, Aunt Peggy made us bag lunches to take with us. I always enjoyed her visits to the East. She will be missed.
