I met Peggy in 1971 when we lived in the same wing of Augusta Hall at St. Mary's College. We both transferred to Notre Dame in 1972 and we stayed lifelong friends. She was smart, friendly, and modest about her significant accomplishments. She and Don raised a wonderful family and her inventions made a difference in the lives of so many.
