Peggy Sue loved listening to music while singing, dancing, and rocking on her swing. She was a caring, loving, selfless person who never had a negative thought of anyone. Her innocence and exuberance were a blessing to the entire family. She especially enjoyed taking short walks around the yard while holding your hand. She was an active participant in the ARC Special Olympics at West Point and enjoyed interacting with the cadets. The family would like to offer special thanks to Peggy’s ARC Big Island House family for their years of devoted care and love they provided to Peggy.
