PETER JENNINGS assumed room temperature today, this 7th of August, 2005. He died at age 67 of lung cancer. Was it only 4 months ago that he announced his diagnosis?
Death will never be impressed by our looks, our family connections, our degree's, our achievements, our wealth or our sincerity. It comes to us all, ordained of God.
It is final.
There are two eulogies; One is by people, the second is by God. Ultimately, the first eulogy doesn't matter and we don't know the determination of the second eulogy.
"Peter, we say Rest-In-Peace" but it is an empty statement. What we say here and now on Earth will not at all determine whether or not Peter Jennings rests-in-peace. That has already been determined.
But to Peter's family we DO offer our sincere codolences.
