Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to the family. Peggy was special and will be missed. I have a lot of memories of Peggy through the years. She was a very dear friend of me and my mother (Margie Leggett). My most recent memory of her is when she and my mother drove to South Carolina for my daughter's wedding. Rest in peace cousin.
