I loved Peggy and Jack. I met them when I worked for a chiropractor. We became very close, Jack would make something every Christmas and bring to me when I saw them. I still have a wooden wallet that you could only open one side at a time that had a dollar in it. They will always be in my heart.
You will be missed dearly.
Sorry for your loss she will meet us at the pearly gates some day.
You will be missed very much R.I.P. So sorry for your lost Jackie take care
