The Peters Family
I wish to send a message of sincere condolence from Joby, Malieka, Michael, and Jesse to your family with the passing
of your mother. She looks so sweet to have such a curious "Secret Agent" type past. Although I never met her, just
reading about her reminds me of my own mother, who was the true core foundation of the family. Our prayers are with you and
Marty... and all your brothers.
