Farewell Peter

Today, representatives from St Paul’s joined members of other churches, family and friends at Trinity Methodist Church, Oadby for a service of thanksgiving for the life of Peter Cooper who died on 2nd January aged 77yrs. (see blog of 6th January)

The church was packed as the minister, Revd Mark Cheetham, led the service. He told of Peter's life, Cambridge studies, rowing, personnel management and family life. He also spoke of Peter's work as a local preacher in the Methodist church and his work for Churches Together in Oadby.

All the church was moved emotionally as his grandchildren read  a poem, "Grandpa Kept  a Garden."

All our thoughts continue to go out to his family and friends.  He will be much missed.
