DONALD GEORGE PETERS August 22, 1957- September 28, 2017 Donald George Peters, age 60, of DeFuniak Springs, FL, passed away September 28, 2017. He was born August 22, 1957 in Dayton, OH to Johnny Franklin Peters and Vernell Miller Peters. Donald worked his entire life in the construction industry until ill health forced his retirement. He was an avid fisher- man and spent countless hours in the lakes and ponds of Northwest Flori- " tt i ar/dS6uthAla'b/ iiia. Iti' his spare time, Donald was often found on the back roads riding and visiting family and friends. His sweet smile and loving ways will be truly missed He was preceded in death by daughter, Donna Mi- chelle Peters; father, Johnny Franklin Peters; and mother, Vernell Miller Peters. Survivors include wife, Wilma King Peters of DeFuniak Springs; daughter, Mary Peters of Val- rico, FL; sons, Donald Mathew Peters of Panama City, FL, Kevin King and wife, Rebecca, of Abbev- ille, LA; brothers, Stan Peters and wife, Debra, Bo Peters and wife, Louise, and Robert Peters; sister, Joy Peters; and 6 grandsons.

Join in remembering Donald Peters by visiting a memorial at Through this site share thoughts and fond memories with the family. One of the most irritating, aggravating, frustrating - and yet stimulating - questions is - "Why?" It angers parents and annoys teach- ers. It disturbs moments of quiet reflection when we think we have the answers to "every- thing" then we realize we don't. It bothers us deeply when we are asked "why" did you do this or "why" did you do that. It Seems to be planted deep within the brains of children to make us defensive or angry or even feel stu- pid. But "Why" is an important question. It can force us to look at what we have done or what we ate about to do. It can, in all reality, keep us from doing wrong or encourage us to do what is right. David addresses the "Why" question quite frequently. In Psalm 86, however, he makes an observation and then answers it with "why." He wrote, "I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify Your name for- ever." Then he adds the why for us: "For great is Your love toward me; You have delivered me from the depths of the grave." "Praise" and "glorify" are a most important part of our worship. When we look at these two verses together, we find an important reason to remind us why we worship God: it is because of His love and mercy. We may not know what he is referring to when He said that "God delivered me from the depths of the grave." And perhaps that's good. What's don't mat- ter - God does/There are many days when we feel we are about to be "buried alive." Then, God delivers us. It's time to worship.
