Peggy Seymour

The light seems dim now.
Peggy Seymour (I won't say Margaret because frankly, she hated that) was stolen from us on April 12, 2013.
There is not enough space on the pages of this publication to begin to describe the experiences, times, worlds, and individuals well-met that made up who Peggy was.
Nursing student, horse trainer, structural draftsman, painter, businesswoman. A stained glass artist whose installations can be seen in most Hard Rock Café locations throughout Southeast Asia, China, and Japan; as well as embassies, office buildings, shopping malls, churches and cathedrals, and private residences from shophouses, to the palaces of the Sultan of Brunei.
Most recently she worked as Director of Property Management for Liz Moore & Associates; a job she adored.
Peggy was a person of boundless energy and enthusiasm. She always strove to be the best at whatever she put her hand to. Her style and forthright manner was captivating. Those who came into contact with her went away richer for the experience.
Dearest friend, wife, lover. Go now and sit amongst the flowers on the hillside. Keep watch and in the eve light a fire so that I might find you in the darkness.
In lieu of flowers, donatations can be made in Peggy's name to the Heritage Humane Foundation.
