    Heaven gained another angel. My aunt was one of the best people I’ve ever known and God needed her more than we did as she lost her battle with cancer. So thankful that my brother, cousins, and I spent our summers growing up with her at my grandma’s house and for all of the memories I will always cherish. I know one day I’ll see her again. –Courtney & Erich

    I was introduced to Petra by a friend who was dating her older sister at the time. We all went out and had a lot of good times together. Petra was very nice and fun to be around. Arkansas in the late 1970′s and early 1980′s was just waiting to be explored. Devils Den was a hoot and you could go in the caves! I still remember all the fun we had together. I was a U of A student and engineer for the campus radio station KUAF (rock & roll) back then. NPR was coming in and a new student station was needed, KRFA. Petra & I installed the carrier current transmitters in all the dorms. I taught her how to tune for minimum SWR, drill holes in concrete walls etc. Petra liked best going through the halls and talking to and meeting students and seeing if the radio signal worked in all the rooms. She had a wonderful time. The U of A did not pay well but gave great experiences that have lasted all my life. She will be missed. Cancer is so horrible. My wife Brenda is a breast cancer survivor. All we can do is fight and hope for a cure someday.

    Petra was a dear person and a good student, always pleasant and a bit shy. I will remember her smile; I am so sorry she left us so young. I believe we shared a joy in going to a good yard sale; I think that is where I saw her last.
