A special thank you to the staff on 5SB at the Health Sciences Center for the care, support and compassion they have shown Peggy and her family during her short illness.

Cremation has already taken place and we will be respecting Peggy's wishes as we have done throughout her journey as there will be no visitation or service.

Peggy may have been very sick near the end but in our eyes she had never lost the quiet sort of strength she always had even as she grew ill. Her voice was a voice that never failed to give us the comfort we needed as well as the best of advice.
And it is at this moment we realize how in the end what we remember are not necessarily the grand things but the simple everyday things.
While our family is deeply saddened by the loss of such a caring a loving person, we are grateful to have had her in our lives for as long as we did.
We may have lost her physically now but we firmly believe as she also did that someday we will reunite once again. And as we wait for that day, we will keep her in our minds and our hearts where her memory will live on for as long as we do.
