Pete is in Heaven

Postby Peteswife » Tue Apr 17, 2012 2:15 am

My darling husband Peter Muller earned his Angel wings this morning at 06:30. He is now in Heaven and has no pain!
Thanks to all the good wishes, prayers etc. We really appreciate!
Love to all who is still in this battle. We had it for 8,5 years, and we fought!
Ilse Muller
After 8,5 years living with CRC, Pete passed away on 17/4/2012. We had lots of quality time, we said our goodbyes! I am at peace because he doesn't suffer anymore! He is now better off with the Lord! We will surely miss him very very much!!
