I want to first express my deepest condolences and sympathy to all friends and relatives of Jean Hoadley Peterson and her husband. I have been personally touched by her life and the tragic events of Sept. 11th today and will from this day forward will always keep her in my thoughts and prayers. I went to the United Blood Services office this afternoon to give blood and was advised that they were asking donors to sign a ribbon and be a sponsor for a Sept.11th victim. The name I was given was Jean Hoadley Peterson. Please know that although I never met or knew you that your spirit and courage now buoys me and I will keep your memory aand the memory of all the victims forever with me. May God bless all of her loved ones and give them comfort, healing and the conviction that these senseless deaths were not in vain. Jay Mccrary

Today is the sixth month anniversary of that terrible day in our Nation's history. I only learned of Jean's fate when I got my Manheim Township Alumni Newletter in Decemeber 2001. I was so saddened to learn the news. Jean and I were very close friends during our Jr. and Senior High School days. We dated and double dated and shared many school activities together in our youth. Jean was a great friend and I am certain she was an outstanding mother. She always had a special charm and love of people and was a faithful Christian. While it had been many years since I last saw Jean, it was like it was yesterday and the loss was so close. My family and I send our love to her daughters, friends and relatives and trust that the Lord has made a very special place in heaven for his faithful followers Jean and Donald Patterson.

We are deeply sorry for our nation's loss of Jean and Donald. May their lives and love live on in all who love them. May warm memories of times together lighten the sorrow in your hearts. I believe God cried deeply when He saw the evil that took the lives of His innocent children before their time. In the shadows of darkness they cried out His name. They found shelter and protection from human pain as He lovingly embraced them. Cradled in His arms earthly cries became heavenly songs as angels were born. Our hearts cry deeply with you in America's loss of a hero.
America Cries
We see your sorrow-
and our hearts cry....
We can not erase your pain
but you do not have to face the anguish alone-for we-
-the American people-
are beside you.
We so desperately want to have the touch that brings you comfort,
the strength that gives you courage,
and the words to lighten your spirits.
And when we are left speechless
may the silence of our nation weave love into your hearts
to ease your sorrow.
May you find healing through our nation's strength as we-
-the American people-
face this difficult time together. Our hearts are with you. Teresa Jahn
