Dear Linda , the moment I saw the photo of your beloved Peter and read that now he was in the arms of the Savior I envisioned the heartbreak for you; and thought of this face so full of energy being torn from your arms. I am sorry. O death you still have sting but not for long....The obituary, and watching the video of the service portrayed a life well spent being fully alive. Linda you truly give "Chef Pierre" a beautiful good bye. I cried as you read the poems your wrote. Thank you for sharing your heart with us all on the internet.........I liked the Greek Orthodox priest. Maybe I could get him to pray over me like that..... Who would have thought that a rather scrawny, very active kid I knew in high school would become such a beautiful bride . I do not remember you ever standing still when you talked to me. I contrast that with seeing you on video still for a few moments when your life mate lay "sleeping" in front of you. Thank you so much for sharing where the Lord has taken you these years in photos . So precious.You said you were lucky. I see blessed. Keep the faith. Our prayers for your comfort. May God continue to bless you withHis healing.

Linda you have many happy memories with Peter. Love never dies. May the Lord be with you and bring you comfort in the days ahead. You were blessed with a partner who loved and cared for you in many ways. He definitely was a superb chef. His loss is heavens gain as they will have a banqueting tables where he can use his culinary skills to the utmost without any pressure or effort, things are a lot easier there. I am here for you when ever you want to talk or pray. Love Barbara
