    Peggy, I'm so sorry for your loss. She was one of my favourites, always joking with the care aids and the smiles matched her dancing eyes. It always seemed the glass was half full. I so much enjoyed seeing you come through the front doors almost daily and you adopted her smile as well. My thoughts are with you and your family, she lived a great life.
