Peggy Meyer
My little sister Peggy passed away today and though she's only been gone less than a day it feels like its been forever.
Born Feb. 2nd 1957 (Ground Hog day) she was my little sister and I was her protector (when we weren't fighting each other like all siblings do.) We hugged each other with joy when our little brother Jason was born in 1969 and once again in sorrow when our father passed away in 1970. Peggy was fun to be around and never really had a bad thing to say about anyone. Married in 1975 her only child Danny Meyer was born in Nov. of 1976 and we all laughed when our mother bemoaned the fact she was now a Grandmother. She worked as a florist she did the flowers for every wedding/funeral our families ever had, she had the magic touch with flowers that really impressed her big-bro.
In her later years Peggy battled both Cancer & Liver disease though it took its toil on her she still always smiled and took on that "Don't worry be happy" attitude about life. (She was always 10 mins late for every thing & every time even for Christmas dinners, so much that I used to joke that she would be late for her own funeral)
Last week even though she was feeling a little under the weather she still came over to visit and drop off Christmas gifts for all of us as Christmas was a special time for her to show off all her latest projects and make us feel good.
On Dec. 20th she was admited to the hospital and on Dec 23rd 2006 at 08:45 she cut the golden cord and left us to miss her forever at the young age of 49. (She was one month 10 days short of her 50th birthday)
Because of the Christmas season her funeral has to be delayed for almost a week, therefore like always she will be a little late once again. (I type this with a smile and a tear in my eye.) Good bye little sister until we meet again, thank you for your Chrsitmas gifts I shall treasure them forever. We shall lay you to rest next to dad in the next few days.
