This is for Mom, the Peg of Our Hearts and for her sister, my Aunt Mariann.
My Mom lost her long battle with Alzheimer's in May 2014. Throughout it all, she was always gracious, usually a difficult trait for those with Alzheimer's. That was probably due to her upbringing and overall good nature.
Her sister, my dear Aunt Mariann, lost her battle with Alzheimer's this year in January. They always supported each other and showed their deep love. Aunt Mariann and Mom were gentle, caring and giving souls. I take comfort in knowing that their 'sister love' continues to this day since they both gave us many examples by which to live.
This is my SIXTH year leading the Peg of Our Hearts team in Mom's honor. I am committed to leading this team, not only this year during these difficult times, but for as long as I am able.
