  1. We recognize the uniform and the flashes that declare his service era and, though we never met, we are saddened to hear the news of his passing. We read his story with joy, however, sharing the same hope in the resurrection to a new creation that will need no defenders. Thank you for your service, Peter, and for your legacy and for your continuing testimony to the truth. The good that men do lives after them, indeed.
