So sorry to hear of your loss. Know that your family is in my thoughts & prayers. I will never forget the whole family coming out to Cen-Tex Nursery & enjoyed watching the boys play in the shade house! Peter is hugely responsible for the soccer program in Temple, which my kids loved participating in when they were younger - for that we are all grateful.

Cora, I was so sorry to hear about Peter. In all the time I've known you it was clear to see the love you had for your husband and family. I know that God's grace and love will be your foundation during this very difficult time. Just know that Peter will always be with you, every time you think of him, his smile, his laugh......

No greater friend. A most unforgetable person, who will be missed by everyone. Anytime the Netherlands plays soccer, I will think of Peter and his Orange jersey.
