The Abernathy Family - Lockport, NY

All the distance between us from New York to Missouri did not keep up apart. Aunt Peggy was with us always from childhood memories to phone calls, cards and visits. She was always positive and upbeat even when she wasn't feeling well. She liked leaving lucky pennies for people, she was always thinking of others and said maybe it would make someone's day. Love and miss you Aunt Peggy.
