R.I.P to my beautiful friend I started doing nails and esthetics services on Peggy in 2003. She would come every 2-3 weeks. She never missed! I held her hand and we would talk about everything. I would play new country music on our TVs at the salon. She would always thank me for playing her tunes for her cause she knew how I HATE country music but it made her so happy. We would always have to stop so she could write the new songs down. Peg Leippi was a strong, powerful and loving woman. She loved her family so much, she would talk about them all the time, especially her lil grandson Zac. I knew she was suffering but I didn’t know this bad. What I wouldn’t give to hold her hand and do her nails one more time. Peggy was booked with me this week on Thursday at 6 am, I still played country music and sat by myself and said a prayer for my friend. I prayed she wouldn’t suffer anymore. Peggy wasn’t just a client she was my friend and I will miss her so much. So sad
