    This makes me so sad to hear this. PEGGY was one of the most wonderful, sincere people that I have known in my lifetime. While she lived here in Fallon, she kindly babysat my youngest son. He loved going to her home. She was incredibly talented. In everything she did. There is a special place in heaven for Peggy.
