  8. I grew up with Mr & Mrs Peters’ grandchildren in the Knieper family. I remember her being an important part of the fabric of that strong family. Unfortunately, I have been away from the family for years now, but was saddened to hear of her passing.
    I pray she’s able to look down upon us and bless us with her smiles.
    Eternal rest grant unto her o’Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
