    Our county's 2nd oldest veteran passes...

    J. C. Peters was a WW2 US Army vet. He was 97 years old and was married to his wife Evelyn for 58 years. She passed a long time ago. He never remarried. He was a deacon of our church. And I lived exactly one block from him almost my whole life. And I can't say anything bad about him. He wouldn't talk about his war experiences except to say that he saw a lot of dead and dying people. And some were not soldiers, sailors, marines or airmen. But he was ALWAYS ready to talk about our Lord Jesus. He died last Friday evening. We are diminished. Men like this don't come along very often, any more.
