What a small world it truly is. My heart goes out to Petra's family and friends. When I lost my niece, Karen sent a beautiful card and note of memories she had of extended family; I find myself in the same place. Comfort and healing prayers to all

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal
Loves leaves a memory no one can steal.
This passage came from a headstone in Ireland.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
She will always remain in our hearts and will never be forgotten.

although, I never met Petra or Jeremy, I felt drawn through Karen Chronister and was one of the many “prayer warriors “ on their team. I am sad, that our almighty Father was short in his most high angel staff and needed Ms Petra..With deepest sympathy for Jeremy, and all her loved ones.

Petra, you made me feel like a part of the CCAY family before I was even hired and continued to be that warm, welcoming presence every day that I had the pleasure of working with you. You will be so greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family during this time.

Petra was a real gem -- kind, compassionate, helpful, and a sweet angel. She had a welcoming smile that went ear-to-ear and had a gift for putting others at ease. May she rest in Paradise with her Lord and Savior, and may her family find some comfort in knowing that her God-fearing ways and beautiful soul touched so many. Prayers and condolences to her family.

I work from home for CCAY, but on the occasions when I went in to the office, if Petra was at the front desk, I, along with everyone else, was greeted with that wonderful, friendly smile. She will definitely leave a void for everyone who knew her. Prayers to her family.

My condolences to Petra's family. She was always the warm welcome I walked into every morning at the reception desk. I went out of my way to talk to her almost every day, and I'm going to miss the conversations and laughs that we shared. You don't always see everyone everyday at CCAY, but Petra did. Petra was a part of every single person's day here, smiling and cracking jokes. She was also one of the hardest working people I've ever met. Even when things were hard and stressful, she always came to work with that same warm smile. And just as she preserved through the hard times, she would want us to come to work with a smile and just keep going.

My prayers go out to your entire Family. They are no words to ease your pain, but God and our new Angel Petra will watch over you. I have been blessed to have laughed, shared stories of our outdoor adventures, our Steelers, and working together at CCAY with Petra for years. Her smile infectious, her strong will unbreakable, her sense of humor appreciated. Her laugh unforgettable. Petra, you have left your footprint on my heart forever. May you rest in Peace ! Miss you !

We shared so many laughs during the time I worked with you at CCAY. You were a bright light with the best personality. I loved when you spoke of your grandkids and much you loved them. You will be so missed but never ever forgotten.
