To my cousins Mark and Debbie, and both of your families, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. To me she was my Aunt Peggy. She was part of my earliest memories. When I was 5 or 6, I was flower girl in her wedding. Our families lived near each other for a few years in Florida. I remember riding my bike a couple blocks to your house. Our families got together often. Later in Ohio, also in Michigan, I remember various Childs/Robertson get-togethers, and how much fun your mom and my dad would have with their Robertson cousins. I will always remember her stories, her warmth, her laugh, and how I looked forward to her visits. I was happy and proud to call her my aunt, and she will be very much missed. Love, Your cousin, Connie

Peggy was a delight to get to know! She and my Grandma Dot dined together for awhile and she would always smile and converse. We enjoyed her company and her kindness. Praying for your comfort during this time of loss. I am blessed to have met Miss Peggy!

Margaret Ward was a Lovely woman of her generation. She was a quiet graceful woman who I know supported her 2 children thru life. I hope the memories of their Mom comfort them now and always Moms are always with you??
