    Difficult to know, Peg was a Highly Sensitive Soul. Kind and Compassionate, A lyrical voice, Sweet and demure, underutilized. A Mother, a Wife, a Grandma, a Friend, a Sister-in-law an Aunt. Private, she kept thoughts to herself, Demure, she put others before self. She would helplessly worry, for her daughters success, Always and only, wanting their best. ’Just be happy and Maintain your friends’ Not confrontational, Didn’t want to offend. There are others like Peg, She wasn’t alone, Her world could be lonely, She told me so. She would have chuckled At the Typo they made, POPMAN for POMPAN, Her humor maintained! White gloves and purses, Dresses and Pearls, Dinners on Sunday She embraced family times. Keeping us safe Wanting our best Her simple reminder ’It’s Your happiness’…… Remember-Recall- one kindness, a soft word or a smile, something, just one thing, she taught you…and smile… Silent, still, suffering no more, Peaceful and calm, Peg’s now in Her world.

    My Dear Peggy, I will miss you more than I can express. I told you many times you were my best friend. We shared so many wonderful memories together over the last several years. I will never forget you or your devoted husband. Seeing the two of you together is one of my fondest thoughts. Peggy always remembered important things that I couldn’t, like what year Gone with the Wind came out. She was my trivia Queen. Peggy had a tender soul and it was an honor to assist her in anyway I could. Thank You Peggy for the many lessons that you taught me.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family as you mourn Peggy’s death. Leah, Maria, and I remember visiting Peggy at St. Anne’s a few years ago She lovingly shared all of the pictures of her family that she had on the windowsill. I remember her kindness and warmth when I first met her at Sheila’s apartment in Kingston,N.Y. and at her home in Greece. We hope your lifetime of memories will bring you comfort and peace throughout the days and months ahead. Sincerely, Gail and Tom Heppner and Leah and Maria Schwartz
