Gone From My Sight

This is my mother, Peggy Stansell. Today she is cancer-free. She died early this morning while holding my father’s hand.

  2. Neely, I was a camper and staff member at Bethelwoods in the 80’s and your mom was truly a joy to be around and have known. I am sure that hundreds, even thousands of others who got to spend any time with her at camp will truly mourn the loss with you. She had a loving and joyful impact on so many children’s lives. We will all miss her dearly. God Bless you and Skip!

  3. Neely,
    This is such a beautiful way to let your readers know of Peggy’s passing. It is a blessing to know that she is now cancer free and is with Nan and their parents.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss Neely. The strength of your love for one another is a testament to your mother. Godspeed Peggy…your time of suffering is over and the time for celebration has just begun.

  5. Lots of love and prayers for peace and healing for you and your family, Neely. How beautiful, sweet and precious you made this time with and for your mom.

  6. I rejoice in your Mom’s new found freedom, but am saddened by the news. I knew her through ARW and always admired her many, many talents, not just with arts and crafts, but with people as well. I didn’t know about the cancer; (I haven’t seen your Mom for years-I live in Korea now.) God bless you-like the blog.

  7. Your mom and dad were like the sail and the rudder on the same boat. I spent two summers at Bethelwoods and although I don’t recall the year you were born, I recall their joy in your arrival. I still have the note of condolence that Peggy sent me when my brother died (1983). Her compassionate message has always stayed with me. She was like the Rock of Gibraltar wrapped up in a feather pillow. You are doing your parents proud with every word. Please give your dad a hug on my behalf.
