We met as total strangers and because of a terrible disease called ALS, Peggy and I found a bond that connected us like sisters. Her smile and laughter, strength and courage and love for her family were beautiful moments to witness. We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful angel as Peggy watching over all of us. To Tom, Sara and Erick, my respect and love for you is beyond words. The love in your home was evident everytime I had a chance to see you together. The unfaltering care you gave Peggy made her journey that much more bearable. Let your wonderful memories of your Wife/Mother put smiles on your faces and help you find peace in your hearts…..that’s what she wanted for all of you.

So lucky to have met her, so sad to have known her so briefly.
One of the bravest, strongest woman I’ve met yet, with a family to match.
Love to all of you.
