    Ann, Robbie and Alissa, I was very sorry to read that Grammy Peg passed away. When we were all children, I remember both Grampy Jack and Grammy Peg coming over all the time to see you. I know they both loved you all. Now, they are back together in Heaven, talking about what Robby will do up at camp; how Alissa has such beautiful children, how lucky they are to have such beautiful grandchildren and laughing about all the little things you all do that are things they did until the end. May the road rise up to meet Grammy Peg as you travels the path to God's grace.
