I would just like to say something about Petey... I would like to say thank you. He was the ONLY senior on the Coronado Highschool lacrosse team that was nice and cool and everything to us freshmen. I personally looked up to him A LOT. He was a great friend and teammate. I would also like to say... I know that there is life on the other side. I know that he is resting, he is learning, and he is with family members who love him. I bear witness to this as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. God bless your family, Petey, and I'll see you on the other side. Thanks for being my friend.
It's hard for me to imagine a day in Oxford that didn't involve Petey. His friendship, loyalty, sincerity, and good humor will always have a lasting impression on me. I wish there was a way to put into words what Petey's friendship meant to me and everybody that had the privilege of getting to know him. In all of the darkness following the accident I know that my grieving will end with a big genuine smile, affirming Petey's impact on my life and helping to spread his joy to the world. I love you Petey. I'm going to miss you more and more with every day that passes.
I was the new kid at Greenspun Junior High in 2013. I remember the first day of school in Mr. Michelson's math class we were given assigned seating, I got put next to Jared. He had long, black hair a slipknot shirt and black jeans, this is pretty much what his wardrobe consisted of in 8th grade. In class we often had to do math problems and work in groups, Jared was so smart the only reason I passed 8th grade math was because of his help, he was a math genius! I so looked forward to seeing him everyday because he had this light to him, you couldn't help but be in a good mood when you were around him. I remember him needling me all the time about the music I listened to and that slipknot was pretty much the greatest band ever, "they don't scream, they sing" he would tell me. Towards the end of the year I began to form this huge crush on Jared but could never tell him because at this point he was one of my best friends. During this time AIM was really popular, I had my own computer in my room. I can remember countless hours talking to "sicslipknotfan" about everything you could imagine. He was one of those guys that you could pretty much tell anything and everything to and he would never judge and give the BEST advice. I found out his first name was Brian, I LOVED calling him Brian because nobody else did. We found out that we were both zoned for Coronado High School which was great news to both of us. Unfortunately we didn't remain best friends in high school as we both had a lot of differently things going on in our lives. I remember the day he came to school with his hair cut, I could not believe it! He cut off his hair that he loved so much and his beautiful face was finally visible! Jared was adored by so many people in high school, come to think of it I have never heard one negative thing about him...ever. A few nights ago I ran into Jared, I was soooo happy to see him for the first time in years! He was so sweet and welcoming, wanting to know all about my life in the time passed. I find peace in knowing how happy he was that night, just having a good ol' time! Looking at his facebook and all of the comments, memories and love makes me feel so privileged that I had the opportunity to know such an amazing guy. The memories of Brian Jared Peters will never be forgotten. Friends come into our lives and friends leave our lives. But friends never leave our hearts. And best friends always get to stay in the best places in our hearts. Forever in my heart
May we find comfort in all the love Petey had for each and every one of us and all the love we had and always will have for him. I truly believe Heaven is a place we already know, Heaven is in the arms that hold us long before our time comes. Petey I know was Heaven in my life and fortunately he is always only a thought away. Until that day we meet again on eternities shore, my love for him will always grow. RIP Petey, my love to you and everybody reading this.
