Marina, Joe and Families: We are so sad to hear of Peg's passing. We spent many wonderful years with her and Mac in Carlisle. Now they are together. I am glad I got to have lunch with her before all her heart complications started. She will always be in our hearts. Our sympathy to all of you....she loved her family dearly. I am sorry we are unable to come on Saturday, but we will be there in spirit. The Blumenthals
