Dear Peterson Family~ I graduated HS with Todd and he was one of my dearest friends. He was a kind and gentle soul who always had a mischievious smile on his face! :) I remember his high, funny laugh and how he always made every day more fun. I haven't seen him now for way too long since I moved to Maui but have very fond memories of him and I'm very sorry for your loss.

We get sad to hear of such a young life being lost. Get so much comfort from Almighty God's word at 2Corinthians 1:3,4; Revelation 21:3,4. John 5:28,29; may these verses comfort those trusting in God's word.
