Hello all,

As you may or may not have heard, my father-in-law, Thomas Peterson suddenly passed away the morning of June 14, leaving his loving family behind. We are all deeply saddened to lose our devoted father, grandfather, husband and beloved member of the community.
I knew Thomas Peterson as my always energetic, hard-working and caring father in law, but he was much more than that to his family. A devoted husband, loving father, and a proud grandfather. Although this is our time of grieving, we are also celebrating his life and the lives that he has touched.
This is a very sensitive and difficult time for the Peterson family and they can use all the help that they can receive. We have already received an outpouring of love, support and prayers from many. However, one of the most crucial areas that needs to be cared for is expenses. Seonghwa's/funerals are a heavy financial burden and we need help to cover the costs. If there's anything you can spare to help out the Petersons in their time of need, we will be eternally grateful. Let's give back to one who has given so much.

Thank you everyone for your continued love, support, and especially your prayers.
