Dear Vernon and family - I'm so sorry for your loss. My Mom passed away in Newark the Thursday just prior to your Dad's passing. May his memory, his wisdom and his love for you stand strong in your hearts. I know it's difficult for both of us to lose a parent, but they did a great job of preparing and shaping us into the men we've become. Praying for grace and mercy on us and our families, and for the presence of God to be strong in and through us. Blessings and peace to you and yours, Tom Smith NHS '74

Dear Family, My Dad, Edward F. "Pete" Peterson was also an ironworker and belonged to Local 451 all of his life. Sitting on my desk are all his Iron Workers books filled with stamps (dues) dating back to 1947. There is no doubt in my mind that my Dad and George must have worked on several jobs together over the years. They were brave men to climb that steel! I still have my Dad's original iron workers toolbelt and it weighs a ton! How did they ever climb with all of that weight wrapped around their waists? How did they tolerate working in the bitter cold or extreme heat? They were men from one of the greatest generations in the history of our country. I never cross over the Delaware Memorial Bridge (first one built) and not see my Dad working on the top towers back in the early 1950's. Nor do I ever forget his partner, William Church, who fell to his death from that tower. I'm sure that there are many such places for you, too, where George worked over the years. They are and will remain monuments to his skill and courage as an iron worker. However, his greatest achievement in life is the family that he loved with all his heart. May he rest in peace. His work on earth is now complete and he will live on through each and every one of you. With deepest sympathy, P. Patricia "Pat" Peterson

Vernon & Family, And so GOD's work continues to amaze us. Reflecting on the events over the last few months, we might try to see your Dad's passing as one more piece of the mystery solved. Thankfully, we don't know our future or the reasons "why". Let's choose to believe that GOD is letting you know that it's ok to relax a little, lighten your heart a little and move on through your life knowing that your father and your daughter are together working miracles to ensure you can find happiness and clarity in your life on earth. Brian and I love you lots...we hold all our memories dear and pray for relief and comfort during the days and months to come. We never minimize ones feelings... But know for sure this my friend...the heaviness in your heart will pass with time and you will find yourself smiling more-- knowing They have your back. Blessings and friendship, LD & Brian
