Family Is Appreciative

Dear Editor,

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Rockaway community for the support, care and comfort they provided to our sister Peggy Vivino during her illness.

For the last 18 months we saw and felt the wonderful fellowship of this community. During each of our visits, we were always asked how she was doing and what could be done to help her, her family or us. A smorgasbord of food arrived regularly at the house, snow was shoveled and rides to and from the hospital were arranged.

These are just a few examples of your kindness. “Amazed” is the only way we can describe the response to the Viva Vivino benefit! On Valentine’s Day she received over 350 valentines – your kindness made her life a little easier. We would love to thank each of you individually but alas, do not know all your names.

So we are sending a great big THANK YOU to the community at large but especially to some of the people Peg held dear in her heart. Thank you - Peggy P., Susan (both of you), Rachel, Virginia, Roberta, Kathy, Mary, the Graybeards, and the Rockaway Theatre Center community.
