23: The Two Sets Of Threes Never Lie Never Cheat Never Steal Don't Whine Don't Complain Don't Make Excuses Will, sixteen is a WOW and a big year for you... formally called William Henry Peterson V, commonly called "Will', but I like your uncle's nickname "Five" better! I am most proud of the young man you have become to date and that you will carry on the Peterson name. There was my grandfather W.H.P. Sr. and my father W.H.P. Jr. who were pillars in their communities and their business lives. You know me W.H.P. III (Pops!) and your father W.H.P. IV (Dad!) who have followed in that tradition of love, respect, and faith. NOW it is your turn W.H.P.V.! You are to grow as a Young Man and become 'THE MAN' in the years to come. Who is 'THE MAN'? 'THE MAN' is YOU and how you walk each day and you shall be a man of your word and true to your heart. You shall always do what you say you are going to do. You shall be true in all things; in your love and respect of self and others (male, female, parents, family, friends, business associates); in your faith and in all your worldly deeds. Of all the fun times we have shared... two stand out... wrestling a ticklish V in my bed, (no more given you are now too big), but still gentle at heart,... and that precious time on Xmas eve every year reading ‘The Night Before Christmas'. That's a good family tradition you can carry on with your family and maybe even one day with a W.H.P.VI? Know that we will always love you and look forward to sharing your bright future. Love, Pops

38: Peace with God Through Faith Romans 5:5 "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." A Man of Good Reputation -- Above Reproach A Man of Moral Purity A Man of Faith - Fixing Our Eyes On The Cross A Man of Love A Man of Friendship & Loyalty A Man of Self Control A Man of Prudence (Humility, Gratitude) A Man of Self Control A Man of Generosity A Man of Industriousness (Hard Work) A Man That Is Set Apart - Living a Life Pleasing to God

39: William, It's hard to believe that sixteen years have passed since the day you came into my life. It seems like yesterday I was holding you in my arms, rocking you to sleep, and playing with Thomas trains. All the moments that brought us laughter, lots of giggling, and so much joy. Through the years I have seen you grow in countless ways, but I am most proud of the gentle, loving, and kind heart that God has given you. Today, you stand as a young man ready to finish high school and set your course for college and life. My prayer and hope for you is that you embrace your faith, God, and the responsibilities that come with being "A Man That Is Set Apart". I want you to know how much I Love You Will. I am so proud and blessed to be your dad and encouraged for what you will accomplish in the future. Dream big, set your plan, be prayerful, enjoy each day, give thanks, and work diligently in all that you do. I love you and am always here for you, Dad
