Condolences for Helen Hazel Keith Peckworth

In 2009 I drove Mom and my kids to Florida for a dual 50th Anniversary celebration. On the way, we stopped to visit the Peckworth’s. Despite their life-long friendship and the many times I remember the Peckworth visits to Annapolis, it was the first time Mom had actually visited them! I don’t know why other than Mom and Dad seldom traveled. But I do remember Mom and MRS Peckworth swimming laps in our pool and enjoying their friendship

We only knew Helen for a short time, but have been inspired by her by her grace and strength. We are grateful to have been a small part of her life.

One of the things that makes me smile is that my tiny mother-in-law had a fierce love of chocolate. She'd ask Dana to hide it for her to make it last as long as possible. A box of Frango Mints and chocolate fudge were must sends every Christmas. She also had a fabulous sense of humor and sent us the funniest presents for our pups every year. You will be missed!

Margaret and I are 3rd generation friends, and I know the two generations now all together will continue to watch over us. In 1978, I met my husband far from home, yet by visiting the Peckworths,who lived in the area, they passed their approval on to my folks:). She was my mother's best friend, her opinion was golden. I know that as a wife, mother and grandmother she will be missed dearly.

I was her "other son" and she was my "other mom." In a strange twist, before I ever knew her daughter, she worked for the "Company" and interacted with some of the ABC alphabet folks I took orders from during my tour as an advisor in Laos.
