Peggy and I met in 1975, it was love at first sight. We both tried to ignore our feelings for each other but as time passed, we both admitted that it was divine destiny that we met and were in love with each other. We married in 1977. Life was a struggle with school, two children and starting to build a life together. Peg was my rock, my strength. Peg supported my career changes and was always there when I became sick. Through a major back injury, diabetes and hepatitis C , Peggy was there giving me the strength to cope with each one. She was and is my rock. When I become disheartened because of my health limitations, Peg is there with positive reinforcement and through her faith in God, renews my own. This five foot tall giant lifts me (spiritually) up and makes it possible not to just carry on but to succeed at anything I choose to attempt to do. Peg has enabled me to spend ten years in law enforcement, another ten in emergency medicine and now she has given me the strength and courage to become a registered Maine guide. Peg was supportive when I wanted to adopt abused and rescued dogs. She has shown nothing but love, faith and sacrifice throughout our 33 years together. Peg always puts all others before herself and her needs. I have never met or will meet anyone that could compare to her. Peg is the wind beneath my wings, I would be nothing without her love, strength and faith. Peggy is my hero now and for eternity.
