I will miss meeting and chatting with Peggy on my walks. I hope Molly is doing well. They will both be missed.
I just found out. I am so sorry. Peggy was my good friend and my Irish Mom. She had a heart of gold. Loved all her stories and I loved how she told it like it was. I am so going to miss her. And I will miss Molly too. Please keep in touch. I would like to know how Molly is. And if possible I would like to see her. I sure she is having the greatest family reunion in Heaven. Peggy, rest in Peace my friend. I will always love you. 🍀

Mom lived each day the meaning of life; showing kindness and compassion with her loving smile and infectious laugh. Mom brought joy to all of us. We grow up with stories and music of Ireland. And a house full of dogs, cats and even rabbits. It brings great joy to hear how Mom touched the lives of so many others. All Our Love! Seamus and Kevin
Mom lived every day the meaning of life; compassion and kindness to family, friends and all Gods creatures. Let us remember her by making our lives the same.
