Dear Celeste and family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom and Dad.
I still have memories of Aunt Peggy visiting us in California . I took her shopping for things to bring back to North Carolina to her many dogs she had rescued. Our thoughts are with you .

Peggy, thank you for being like a second mother to me. You were my first exposure to nursing and shaped my desire to become one. You also inspired my love of pet grooming. The smell of Dove Soap is still a sweet memory that takes me straight back to bath time growing up. I wish I had taken the time to share these precious moments before now.
