Remembering you often … Sandy beaches, sand between my toes, water skiing, boating, swiming, and singing around the bonfire; playing cards, the bakery stop after church …. Great times, lots of love and laughs. Forever in my thoughts and my heart.

My deepest condolences. Some of my fondest memories include the Peterson “boys” Allen, Eddie and Dick. The best high school men I’ve ever met. Talented,friendly, honest young men……All though I dont remember meeting your father. I’m sure he was in the audience supporting his family. The kind of young men you were is only a reflection of the father and mother you had. Please know my prayers include you as you remember and honor your father and family memeber.
