‘My friend Peter’ by Jeanette Grant-Thomson

Last year, Jeanette’s story, ‘My friend Peter’ was published in the 2018 Stories of Life anthology, ‘Three Dummies in a Dinghy.’

We sincerely apologise, Jeanette, for formatting mistakes in published version and we have uploaded the clean and correct version here.

‘My friend Peter’ is a very  an important story. It speaks of youthful adventures, friendship and ageing. How marvellous that through this story, Peter gives us all this important message about old age and dementia.

Thanks again, Jeanette, for your story,  My Friend Peter.

‘Stories of Life has been a great opportunity and motivation to gain some writing skills and experience. But I think the biggest impact that Stories of Life has had on my life has been reading the stories of other people around my home city who have been impacted and used by God in incredible and inspiring ways.’
