Dearest Patrick and Mary Ellen,

You were extraordinary parents to a very special little boy. You accepted the challenge of raising him with grace, dedication and compassion. How lucky he was to have had you both!

Now you are role models in grief as you adjust to life without Peter. Take comfort in the knowledge that he has reached the ultimate goal of life, rejoicing in the Presence of God.

We burst with pride in you both.

Dad and Lois

From Les Mis: "Threr's a grief that can't be spoken,
Threr's a pain goes on and on..."
So true

I am so fortunate to have had peter in my ccd class for his first and second grades. Peter's smile always lit up the room, -- and he and the other children made a connection and had a special bond. I will never forget Peter, --- and what he taught me---what is really important in life--- faith, hard work, perseverance, and courage. I am blessed to have known him and to know the Ladd family.

Dear Patrick, Mary Ellen, Elizabeth and William,
We are so very sorry for this tremendous loss. We never met Peter, but I had pictures of him as a young baby and at his First Communion (from his grandmother, Anne Preissner - a very dear and old friend). We were attached to him in prayer, and intend to stay in touch with his spirit. He and all your family are a beautiful example of strength and courage. You are in our prayers.

I still have a hard time accepting that we lost such an amazing and special person from our family. I will always miss his goofy little smile that always brightened my day...I love him so much and Thanksgiving will never be the same without Peter. We're so incredibly blessed to have enjoyed the time we spent with him...and I know he lived a wonderful life full of nothing but love through our large and caring family. Patrick, Mary-Ellen, Elizabeth, and
