Dear Peggy Your Mother, My Aunt Irene was always so very kind to me as a child. Always opened her home to me and stopped when ever I waved at her as she drove up the hill to her home and take time to talk. From her dog sony and bow to baby she taught me it was okay to let a dog lick your face. I would laugh and laugh..... Bless her for her kindness!! Love to your family and brother Mike.
