    So sorry to hear of Peg's passing. Such a great person! We still have the wooden wedding scissors that was given in our wedding card in 1987! We hadnt seen them in a while but they were always in our thoughts!! My husband Bob worked with Jack at Kiddings and was like a second Dad to him as Peg was mother! Jack and Peg were such great people and they are now together! Thoughts and prayers to their son and family! Bobby and Julie Bryson (We are so very sorry as we wont be able to attend )
