“She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side," the sisters said. "We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her.”

“We can’t put all of our feelings into words right now, but we will say: Peggy was and will always be our beacon of light, both in this world and beyond,” the pair added. “She will always be a part of us.”

One month after Lipton's death, Kidada wrote a moving message to her late mother on Instagram.

“My precious Mommy Our love existed before we did. We were a constant prayer in each other’s hearts that manifested on this material plane. Our bond knows no beginning and no end. Our souls… intertwined in an eternal dance of destiny, for I know we will meet up again and again,” she wrote.

“Although my being aches deeply for your physical presence, I pray you are enveloped in that infinite space of knowing and love," Kidada said. "May God and every heavenly host meet you where heaven and earth touch and gently guide you on your soul journey. May you be reunited with the source we all begin from and end with. God."

"I will never not miss you," she added. "I will slowly learn to live without the piece of me that left with you on May 11th. Endless love, Kidada.”
