To the Hammond Family:
I am deeply sadden to hear of Peter’s passing. It was a privilege and a pleasure to have been able to know andshare ministry with Rev. Peter at St. Lawrence Parish ,Sept. to Dec. about three years ago as I served as priest-in-charge. I knew he had some health problems but did not know that he had been gravely ill! Peter was a great servant of our Lord and served Him with love, grace and devotion. We thank God for his life and ministry.
Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayer in this your time of bereavement. God bless you all.
