Timothy Peterson of West Boylston, MA, left this earth May 2, 2018. The Peterson family wants to thank all of you that have been there for us, showing us love and support during this time. I also want to lend some comfort for those who may be suffering. My brother was a kind-hearted man who was fighting many battles throughout his life. Depression and anxiety are both powerful things that can take over your life in ways many people (even I) don’t understand. Because of this battle my brother turned to drugs and alcohol. It was his way of coping with the everyday struggle he was facing. He hated the drugs and fought day after day to get clean. During this fight a lot of you lost a great friend. Friendships were broken long before his life was lost. For that I am so very sorry. I find myself asking if there was more I could have done to help him. So, I know that there are many of you asking the same thing. Guilt is something that I am going to give to God. I'm going to trust in him to heal my heart and be with us during this time. I believe that my brother is in heaven. I believe in a God of love and a God of forgiveness. I believe in a God that knows our inner most beings and knows the heart my brother had. This brings me peace during these dark days. For those of you that wish to be a part of the celebration of his life we are having a service for him at First Assembly of God in Worcester, MA on Monday May 7, 2018 at 3:00PM. Timothy’s parents, Wayne and Carol Peterson, along with his siblings Corey, Victoria, Tanja and nephew Elijah would like to open the invitation to all wishing to show their respects. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Teen Challenge, 1315 Main St, Brockton, MA 02301.
