To the family of Richard Peterson:

Richard was such a sweet, kind man. I am so very sorry for your loss, especially so unexpectedly. I was sad to read of his passing. Our first time we met was at church about 20 some years ago when he asked me to read something as he pulled a small slip of paper out of his wallet. This became a weekly ritual, as I am sure it was with others. One day he had the word brunch and asked if I thought that was cool to put two meals together in a word. The next week, I brought him a slip of paper with the word linner. He laughed at the made up word and it actually has been incorporated in our family lingo. From there, a lot of funny, nonsense words became part of our conversations. He was a sweet soul!
