“He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul” Psalm 23:2

Dear Friends,

As some of you already know, Pete, the guiding light of Truck of Love for the past 50 years has gone to his reward. After a short illness and at home with his beloved family he left us for greener pastures on September 28, 2021. One of our friends asked if he was going to leave a message for all of us. When I questioned him he said; “Be kind and love each other.”

Pete and I had talked for some time about the inevitability of his death. He was at peace and because of the wonderful people of Hospice and Community Care here in Rock Hill, he was comfortable until the end. He repeated many times how happy he was: happy to be home, happy to watch the birds, happy to see the flowers in the yard, and happy to be going to his God.

We had the blessing of seven weeks when so many people reached out to him. He heard each message of love and care. I believe he was a little surprised that so many of you expressed how he had influenced your lives in such positive ways. He really didn’t know how important he was to so many. Thank you for that gift.

He was excited beyond measure when we realized God’s final ask of us was to build a homeless women’s shelter. When Pete received the terminal diagnosis on August 12, one of the first things he said (after stating he didn’t want to leave me) was that he was sorry he would not be present at the opening of the shelter. But we all know his presence will be felt. He and I had visited the property where the shelter will be located every day until he could no longer go out. As he looked at the property he could visualize women living there and finding a place of peace and healing. He loved the yard and imagined women relaxing in the shade of the trees, laughing, talking, and enjoying a new life.

This is the final project for Truck of Love. All of my energy going forward will go to make this shelter a reality and a vital part of this community. I am committed to continue this work of Truck of Love and Her Place.

We ask that if you want to do something in memory of Pete you consider making a donation to Truck of Love and designate it for Her Place Women’s Shelter.

God bless you all,
