Aunt Peg was so caring and kind. I remember catching up around the dining room table and checking the jar for peanut m&m's. (Which have been my favorite ever since) Summer time brought swimming and chats on the back porch. We stayed with her for a while and got to marathon the first couple Harry Potter movies. I loved visiting Aunt Peg. I love Aunt Peg. -Chelsea Peters,great neice
