The sparkle in her eyes, the brightness of her smile, the gentleness of her soul will always stay in your mind Peggy.
Your mum was an inspiration to all. Your mum was full of wit and wisdom. She will always be in our hearts, in our talks, and in our memories forever.
Your mum will remain in our memories, as she was, a beautiful, strong and smart woman.
Just remember a mums hug lasts long after she lets go. She will live on thru you and watch over you from heaven above.
Love & Hugs,
your friend and sister,
Maggie xoxoxoxo

A part of me left this world with you today. My heart is broken. I love you more than life itself. Thank you for always loving me, believing in me, molding me, and teaching me and expecting me to be the best person I could possibly be. I love you with all that I am. I will see you again soon. I love you. Suzy Q
