What a wonderful lady and shining spirit in Brentwood. Our family has had the pleasure of knowing the Smith family for many years and we are better for it. Her dignity and enthusiasm shone through her children and grandchildren. Thanks, Peggy (and family), for all you've done for Brentwood and Brentwood High School. Ed Wright Jr.
