We were blessed for so many years to have Peggy as our “Aunt Peggy” and a dear friend. She was always bright, cheerful and made everyone around her smile. We will miss our times that we talked especially during the last few months. Even through the worst of times she was always upbeat and positive and we will miss her very much. Our love always. James and Patricia Gunsaulis
