My heart is heavy.  Peggy was my boss and friend in the mid-1980s.  She was so dedicated to the care of elderly people and worked tirelessly to ensure their comfort and safety.  Because of her tutelage, I was a much wiser representative for my parents as they aged.  I am so sorry I did not know Peggy died 5 years ago.  Tonight I was thinking about how much she had helped me understand the aged and the systems that attempt to care for them, so I did a Google search and found this obituary.  I wish I had known you, dear friends and family of Peggy Swartz!  God bless.  Jan Hamm
