Peggy, rest in peace

Today I learned that my neighbor, Peggy, has died. She had been riding her bike and was hit by a car. I knew her for 20+ years and we had some things in common - we went to the same church and she and I both liked cats. My most recent talk with her had been about Vicky the cat, who we've both been feeding. It's so strange to think of her as not being here anymore. Very sad.

I'm sorry to hear that. It's sad for all the obvious reasons, but also upsetting whenever a cyclist gets hit. Was the driver texting or something?

Thanks, Susan. I'm not sure - it was raining and she was crossing a 4 lane street where there was no crosswalk, but she did that often to get to a nearby park. Here's a story about her ... http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/editorials/article44489499.html

Thanks, Crystal. She had such a nice face. "I had reached a dark place in my life and was told to do something for someone else, expecting nothing in return." Excellent advice.

She and I never discussed politics - I think she was very conservative - but just yard stuff and cats. She was always so nice.
