Peter was my friend, an inspiration, and "Best Man" at my wedding. He rented his little house to us on Kirkland Ave., when Sherri and I were first starting out. He's always been an encourager to to me. and many others. He loved Jesus, and lived it. Always kind and considerate, a quiet soul who never sought to be the center of attention. A humble man. Although we had not communicated in many years, we did see each other about 15 years ago at New Hope Church in Sevierville, TN. I regret that I hadn't gotten together with him since. He was always quick with a smile, and word of encouragement. I miss him!
I have known Peter since the early '80's when I became acquainted with the Lewis family. He was so kind and like a member of the family to all of us. We attended Belmont Church together and were in the same community group for many years. My children also have fond memories of Peter (when it was his turn to watch the kids during our meeting, he would bring several bags of candy!) He was a selfless, loving man whose memory will be cherished by all who knew him. My deepest condolences to the Jew family and to the Lewis family.
I've known Peter since we were in our early 20's at Belmont College. He was always one of the best, and best-spirited of us.
We shared many studies and laughs with one another in those days as well as many memories and stories afterward. I still have an unfinished story to share with him.
I guess now I will do it in prayer. My heart goes out to Pete's family and friends. I'm sure you are aching as I am. God bless and comfort you all.
