Rolf and Louise Peterson – rest in peace together.


My condolences to you all! I’m happy I met Rolf and Louise, in Iceland a long time ago! Rest in peace!

Laurie, Tom, Roberta & Tim, I have such warm memories of your dad. A hard worker, great sense of humor and generous. I remember how your dad looked at your mom when she put on the mink stole and they were leaving for a banquet. They really were so in love. Also, remember when they came to Victoria to help me move back to the Valley. I was too self centered as a young person to appreciate how generous they were with such a helpful act. Good memories at your home (the blue house w/sauna & pool) and many evenings playing crib. My sincere condolences on your loss. May the good memories make you smile, the others help you to grow. Stay close and be kind to each other.

Rest easy now dad. You’re so missed and loved. I’m proud to have had you as my dad. Now you and mom can continue dancing whenever you want.
