To Peggy’s family, my thoughts & prayers as you experience this shocking loss. I’ve loved getting together with Peggy & our friend Sharon Hamilton for our lengthy dinners. So glad y’all called a few weeks ago for a phone chat. Peggy, so sorry you didn’t get your wish of Spring Training with the Cardinals but I’m sure you are enjoying the ultimate game of the angels & saints in Heaven. God bless & keep you!

I remember Peggy from all those years of Nertz Club with my mom (Mary Lou) and the whole gang. Great memories of close friends and lots of laughs (and yelling!).

So sad to hear of your passing, and really regret that you never made it to spring training. We will always miss you on our Girls Night Out every month. Sorry babe, but I don't think they allow brown bags in heaven. My prayers are with the family and my condolences. RIP
