Aunt Peggy was mama’s baby sister, one of my favorite memories of her was when we lived together in Louisiana. Mike was a little boy and she was pregnant with Kim. Bobby Joe was a little baby in diapers, We had so much fun with her teaching me how to be a mom and with her being pregnant and planning and hoping for a girl. Everyday after Uncle Troy and Jim went to work on the gas lines aunt Peggy and I would spend the day just doing girl stuff, window shopping and trying to stay away from house fly size mosquitos as she called them. She was my best friend, sister, and mom during those years.
