Brad and Colleen, we are very sorry for your loss. My husband's parents were Raymond and Louise Mensing from Greenfield, Iowa and related to Albert and Virginia through the branch of Nannie Christine Peterson married to August Mensing. They always had pleasant memories of your parents. Our prayers are with your family. Alan & Lois Mensing; (712)352-2058

Uncle will be missed by all. He was such a big part of my great childhood times growing up on the family farm. I remember a time he let me ride in the front bucket of the tractor and the candy bars hidden in the egg house. He was a real farmer and lead to my love of agriculture over the years. Brad and Colleen you both were the best son and daughter to uncle and auntie, my condolences. love mark

My heartfelt condolences to Brad over the loss of his beloved father. My Uncle Albert was kind and generous to everyone. He led an exemplary life and I am so happy that my sons had an opportunity to know him. I am especially grateful for the selfless and welcoming devotion that he showed my family. He will be truly missed. With love to Brad and Colleen, Keith

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Peterson, his son Brad was one of my dearest friends in college. If Brad is any indication of his father's parenting skills, then Albert was one terrific father. My thoughts and well wishes go out to Brad and Albert's entire family on this sad occasion. I lost my dad about five years ago and truly understand the singular experience and sense of loss this inevitable event becomes for every son who loves his dad. If there is anything I can do,...

Worked with Al at Everitt Lumber from 1979-1986. What a great guy and so good in the mill shop. I have several things he made for me. Rest in Peace dear friend.

Al was a great guy, and a fun "Uncle" to hang out with when we would make the trek from back east .... especially when he was in story-telling mode. We will all miss him, his sense of humor, and love of family.

Please, accept our deepest sympathy. Surely, you know how much we thought of both of your parents. They did so much for us over the years. We used to spend hours visiting with your Dad, out in the "shop". He was truly an amazing man! Thank you for sharing those precious photos in the gallery. We will be unable to attend the services, since we now live out of state. But our thoughts and prayers are with you.
