Truly the end of an Era with the passing of Peggy O'Brien.

Peggy was the instigator that got me to be President of the Saint John Right to Life. She hounded me for years! She was Membership convenor from the beginning and continued until just the last few years when her health started to fail. I was also in CWL with her at the Cathedral and we both taught Sunday School there. She has gone to her beautiful reward. I will miss her. Until we meet again!
