A beautiful woman!

I wish I could personally convey my words and respect for one of the strongest women I have ever known! You will always be in my heart and I will always remember your voice, the laughter, strength and most importantly the conversations about Harrison. You are still one of the most inspirational single mothers to raise an incredible son to become a man. I promise to keep all the memories within me forever, especially the pink hair, and the stinking grilled cheese (those two just came to mind)! Rest in Peace Peglar! It is hard for me to select the submit comment, been taking me a while...Nite Nite Peglar and one of your last text to me, "I love you to the Moon", Right back at you! Harrison stay strong and know you meant the world to your mother and my friend, she is and will always be so proud of you!

While we never met Chris in person, we thought of her often, praying for her health, talking to her on the phone, and following her battle closely. She was an inspiring person, finding ways to smile even as the pain and frustration of fighting cancer persisted and worsened. We are sure she's in Heaven and reunited with her dad.

Chris was one my sister's closest friends. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I understand Chris' son Harrison is a remarkable young man. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Stephanie Mathis (Melanie Zorb's sister)
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I always enjoyed seeing Christi and her special little dogs when she visited across the street with Bruce and Kathi. She was such a beautiful girl and always with a friendly, warm smile. I am so terribly sorry to lose such a nice friend.

The first time I met Christine was at Ernst&Young. She was the only other admin that was closest to my age. At the time, I was very shy, it took me a few times walking by her desk to introduce myself. There was always an aura that radiated from Christine. You could tell that she was a very kind soul. Another memory I have of Christine is shortly after she had Harrison. Her and I have talked about this memory many times because it was so vivid in my mind. She snuck baby Harrison into this storage area. He was probably about 8 weeks old. There was not one admin at their desk. We were all in the storage area taking turns holding him. I remember he was wearing a baby blue jumper and had this full head of hair and chunky cheeks. I have so many other memories of her. She never lost that aura though. Heaven gained an amazing angel.
