Our heart goes out to you Barb, Tanya and Doug.  As a leader at Christian Community Church, Pete helped nurture our faith early in our journey.  Always pleasant, always encouraging, always humorous, and ALWAYS faithful, Pete will be sorely missed by the Wilmington community.  I had the great pleasure of sitting next to Pete throughout the last Men''s Emmaus Walk and he was a pure joy to work with.  I never would have imagined that his warm greeting at the special church service at Waterloo two weeks ago would be the last one I''d enjoy.  We offer our prayers for the family and our thanksgiving to Father God for sharing the gift of Pete Little with us.

My heart goes out to you Barb, Tanya, and Doug. Your all in my thoughts and prayers! I thought so much of Pete! He was like a second father to me when I was growing up. I can remember going to your house with my mother and father. Good times!  Always smiling, laughing, and enjoying life. He was a wonderful Christian man! I admired him for his faith and commitment to the Church! I think so much of all of you! God be with you all at this time!

Doug and Family,
       Please accept my deepest condolences. Even though I didn't know your dad very well, I know he must have been a very special man to have raised such a great family. Take joy in knowing that he ran the good race and his witness goes on.

Doug and Family,
      So very sorry to hear of your loss. I didn't know your dad too well, but know he must have been very special to have raised such a great family. You were a nice addition to Woodland Dr. even though you were there only a short time. Take comfort in knowing that he ran the good race and his witness continues through the lives he touched.

Barb and entire Little family,

I am so sorry for your loss.  I will always be thankful for the support Pete gave me as we began the Sonshine Preschool.   I can still hear his lovely voice when you would ask him, How are you Pete? and he would respond "I''m blessed".   What a blessing he has been and a great Christian example. May God give you strength and peace that passes all understanding during this difficult time.
Love and Prayers,
Debbie Washburn

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.  Pete''s witness and faith are a solace in this time.  He is with other believers in Christ and with his Heavenly Father now!

I am Bob and Doris Hall''s oldest son and I remember the times we spent in Wilmington and the example Pete was to us.

Tanya and Family,  I was on the Emmaus Walk with you many years ago.  One thing that stands out about your Dad (and Mom) is their servanthood, and that they almost always sponsor a pilgrim on the Emmaus Walk.  They have always given of themselves -- what a great legacy!

My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.

To Pete's family and friends;  Rest assured the Lord has opened Heaven's gates for His  newest angel.  Pete was such a saint and true gentleman.  His personality was genuine.  Emily often spoke kindly of him when sponsoring the teen outings from church.  We send our love and support during this time.

In Christ's love,  The Glenn Phillips family
