I was thinking about Jim and I was thinking about Heaven. It is said that Heaven is a place of unimaginable beauty, a place that is more wonderful than anything on this earth. I thought about this because I cannot think of a person I have known who has loved the earth, loved being on the earth and loved working with the earth more than Jim. Now he's in a place more beautiful than anything he could have imagined. We're sad he's gone because he was our friend and we will miss him. If Heaven is good enough for Jim, knowing what a good father, friend and landscaper he was here on earth, then we all have something wonderful to look forwad to. Karol, Jill and Ben please know that our prayers are with you.

To the Jim Peterson Family, My wife and I met Jim when he was landscaping a neighbor’s property. As we struck up a conversation with him, we became impressed with his friendliness, professionalism, knowledge of trees and plants, honesty, integrity, and the way he lived his Christian faith. We subsequently placed four orders over several years for planting trees on our property. All of the trees are very beautiful and enhance our property. Many nursery customers like us will miss Jim. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

My condolences to the Peterson family. I met Jim when he was recommended to complete my landscaping. I always made sure I spent a few minutes talking to him. His smile and friendliness made me smile. He would remind me to see the positives in life. He was so proud of the work he did and it showed in the results of his work. He actually showed up early one Saturday morning to complete work he could not during the week due to bad weather; however, he didn't get much done. We were too busy talking and laughing. He will be missed.

Dear Karol,Jill & Ben, Our deepest sympathy to all of you on the loss of Jim. Jim is truly one person that will be missed deeply by all who knew him. I was deeply touched by knowing him when we bought our new house and he was our landscaper. He always had a smile on his face and treated every customer with the deepest respect. He helped us through some water issues in our yard and I remember him giving up his Sunday to complete the job. He truly is our hero and will be missed. Please remember when someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasure. I hold this statement close to my heart. The Darmodys

Karol,Jill, and Ben, You could not have a person to be more proud of as a husband and father than Jim. He thought the world of you and talked about you all often. That smile, those jokes, the help, the encouragement, the positive attitude,his work ethic, his friendship, and "the lobster" will never be forgotten. Our loss is heaven's gain! His dad needed help in the garden and we can't even comprehend the joy for them to be together again.
