    Dear family:

    My thoughts in the passing of Pete are few. I will miss our brief conversations when he came to visit the family in NC and l happen to be there for meals and gift exchanging at the parent’s home on Christmas. I didn’t think that our last good-by was indeed good-by and that breaks my heart.

    May God grant each of us in the days to come more joy, peace, and fond memories of his beautiful life and time with us.

    Love you all,
    Gina McAdoo De Jesus

  4. Jim & Barb Gerrasch says:

    Barb and I want to say we are so sorry to here about Peter’s death. Since the Lyman’s lived next to us in Avon Lake, OH we were very close to him and his family. It seems like yesterday that Pete was putting in flower gardens in the front yard since he loved them so. He also loved to feed the birds and watch the young one’s in the nests in the evergreen trees next to the house. We really miss the rest of his family and hope they are all doing well. Barb and I are so sorry we can’t make the service for him since we will be out of state during that time. We would love to have seen all the family. May Pete rest in peace and God have mercy on his soul.
