    To Rose and all the Brown & Peterson kids…

    I’m sorry to learn of Don’s passing; I’ve watched Rose’s Facebook posts for quite some time now, staying in the loop on Don’s progress. Our humanness, even as Christians, mourns and misses our loved ones—but because of the way Don lived his life, we know the end of the story; there’s no doubt about the final page of his book. His mind is clear, his body works, and his joy is overflowing. Blessings on the entire Brown/Peterson clan today as you make arrangements and prepare to send him home.
