    Dear Lisa & Eddie; Peter & Paul — I am so sorry to hear this. Peggy was always so sweet and funny when I would visit as a little kid, and I loved following her antics through Lisa’s hilarious Facebook updates. Both of your parents were wonderful people. I hope your memories are a comfort. Norma
