    The memorial service was a beautiful tribute to Peggy. I knew her best through the memoir-writing group at The Commons. She had a wonderful way of sharing her memories in an honest and amusing way. It was a privilege to have known her.

    I so appreciated meeting Peggy at the Rehab a few years ago, where her warm and delightful presence invigorated Howard and myself. Knowing her at that time and since at Russell was a delight for both Howard and me.

    Peggy always had a way of making you, as an individual, feel important. Always listening to everything you wanted to say. Drawing you out. Always entertaining and the most excellent host. Just so fun to be around. Heaven is richer.

    I remember going to Lexington to see Bob and Peg. They were so kind, and welcoming to a little kid! They allowed me to call them by their first names, instead of uncle and aunt, and that made me feel special. Peg was so approachable! I will always...  more

    I chose this photo to recall a very happy time when she and Dad visited us and we went on a foliage tour. We stopped here at the base of Mount Washington for pictures.
