I am so sorry to hear the Peggy has passed away. All of her family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. Peggy and I were friends in grade school at St. Agnes, through high school at West High, and in college. Most of my best memories of those years involve Peggy in some way - she was often the instigator of some of our crazier escapades. She also came up with the idea that we should be veterinarians; an idea she abandoned but I did not, and one that shaped my entire adult life. Thanks Peggy, for all the fun you brought to my life! You will be greatly missed.
