I haven't known Sister Peters long, but she was always so sweet and spunky and had the best advice. I will miss hearing her down to earth comments each week in church. Our love and condolences go to her family. How blessed she was to finally have another Valentine's Day with her sweetheart. May the Lord bless you all.

I did not know Mrs. Peters, but her obituary is wonderful. She was obviously a blessing to many who thrive on the love and support of people like her. Mike and Susan, and your whole family, please accept my condolences and my prayers are certainly with all of you. God Bless, Rodney

Marion was a member of my ward and was always a "kick in the pants" to talk with. We were sad when she moved away, but even more-so to see she's gone now.

Every body admits that men's life is high priced, but different people need cash for different stuff and not every one gets big sums money. So to get some personal loans and commercial loan will be a correct way out.
