Good-bye to My Friend, Peter.

My friend, Peter Kempson, died from cancer early this morning at 1:06 am. This was two months after his terminal diagnosis. His partner, Jan, said that Peter was not in pain and that he passed away quietly. Jan also said that Peter was lucid up until his death.

I will miss my friend, though I am glad to know – for his sake – that his journey on this plane is done. His body had stopped cooperating.

Peter was a gifted artist. Here are some examples of his paintings.

May light perpetual shine upon your soul, my friend. You were a good man and your memory will stay with those who loved you for a lifetime.

  1. I remember Peter as a friend from H.S. days at Watchung Hills RHS in NJ. He was a talented artist and actor; a sweet guy who always flashed his contagious smile. He has left all who loved him way too soon and I know many are saddened by his passing. God speed to an old friend.

    1. Ah, it is very sweet of you to respond. Peter and I shared church, feeding the homeless and also a writing group for a long time. He wrote a lot about those high school days. I appreciate you responding. He loved his teenage years in New Jersey.
