Title: Hello, Love

That is the greeting my Uncle Peter used to greet me. I hope those are the words that God used when he welcomed Peter home. We spent a nice day together on Christmas at my sister, Bonnie's. Those are the meories will hold on to when I think of him. In the new year I pray for peace and comfort for all who love and miss him.
