I enjoyed having Benji being apart of my life. He always knew how to cheer me up and make me laugh. He had such a good heart and kind soul, especially when he would be playing basketball on the court.

I was heartbroken to hear about John’s passing. He was always so kind to me - a substitute teacher at Luers. He even stopped his car one day in the Foster park area to say hello when he saw me walking my dogs. And I loved that he went to the job fair and got a good job at the zoo. I was so proud of him for all of his accomplishments. What a great kid! My prayers are with you.

I met John as a freshman at Bishop Luers High School where I worked as a school counselor. I am heartbroken by his passing. My condolences to Mr. & Mrs. Peterson and their family. I know that John was adored by his family and friends. He will never be forgotten.

I remember when John was around 4 and I ran in to John and his dad. Herman said this is John. John said my name is Alex. He always had a play name. I can not believe he is gone. I worked with Herman and Liz at Magnavox . A wonderful family. It just isn't fair GOD bless you
