Alice and Eunice: I am sorry for the loss of your mom. I remember her well from my days in Tuckerton. She made a positive impact wherever she chose to apply her wisdom and talents. Savor your memories and be thankful that you had her for so many years. My mom died at 91, also, 7 years ago and I still miss her. But I am sustained by memories and the knowledge that our moms really never leave us. They are with us always.

We are saddened by the passing of your Mother. She was by far a woman that made a real difference in everything she was involved in. To know Peg was to have respect and love for her and her values. May she rest in peace.

Alice& Eunice - I am so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a great lady.I enjoyed my time when I visited with her and Uncle Eck many year ago. I am so sorry that i didn't keep in touch. My sympathy and love goes out to all of you.
