My sincere condolences to the Peters family. I have many fond memories of visiting your family in the '80s. Like many others, I remember your husband/dad/grandfather as a very humble and kind man who loved to smile and laugh. I also remember his love for the game of soccer. He would watch us young boys playing on your front lawn and on occasion would even join in. His great love for the LORD was also evident in his walk & talk. I'm thankful that his earthly suffering is now over and that he is now in the glorious presence of his faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. May the rich promises of the gospel provide you with comfort and strength at this time and moving forward. Your loved one will be greatly missed!

The best father a daughter could ask for. He was funny, humble, kind,respectful, godly, treated his wife (my mom) like gold, loved us kids, grandkids, and grandkids. My heart goes out to all the family. Wish I could be in Canada with the rest of the family but the Corona virus has made that impossible. So thankful to God that dad no longer suffers, thankful for the memories, thankful to all my family in Canada showering love for mom and each other, thankful for the great love and care of the nurses at Shepherd's Care and Dr. Toffick (sp?). God has been good and still is!

“The Mann “ as I always call him and Ehefrau as for his beloved wife! Personally love hearing their stories! I admire the love, respect and loyalty they have for each other not only by words but also through their actions. Thank you for sharing your good soul and will surely miss your smile “The Mann”.
