Back in 1958 Peggy was part of The Our Lady of the Angels School fire here in Chicago, IL. She died in the fire. There were 92 children and 3 nuns who passed away. That day, I was in kindergarten at a public school in the town of Western Springs, Il. Peggy was 10 years old in the fifth grade. When I came home that afternoon my mother was crying. All she said was "Those poor children! Those poor, poor, children!" At that point I started to have a dream that was a continual reoccurring nightmare. It started while I was still in kindergarten and lasted all the way through the middle of my sophomore year in high school. The dream was continues. Long story short, years later I discovered that the dream I was having matched what happened to the boys in the fire! At the very end of every dream was a little face looking at me before I woke up. I discovered in 2008 that the face belonged to little Margaret Anne "Peggy" Sansonetti. It is the photo in the stripped dress with the crucifix around her neck. I continually pray for her every single day and shall continue do so through the end of my life! Peggy, I feel, brings out the goodness, kindness, and love in all people! May she never ever be forgotten. I feel that with my help she will always be remembered and prayed for! May God Bless you and your families, always!
