Edward, David and Frances, we grieve over Paul's departure but are grateful that he is in Heaven with God. May the Lord Jesus comfort your family during this time.

Hearing of Paul's death saddens me. He was among the first persons who welcomed me when I joined the Division for Exceptional Children of the NC Department of Public Instruction in September 1970. He always seemed to delight in using his old black Underwood. When I think of him, I remember his funny stories, passion for detail, love of good music, hearty laughter and gentle spirit. Paul was my friend.
I am so sorry to learn of Paul's passing. I first met Paul as a beginning teacher in Guilford County Schools in 1961. I always appreciated his wise counsel and his dedication to the education and welfare of individuals with special learning needs. We had a great time working on conferences and curriculum for several years. We maintained a working relationship throughout our professional lives and continued to be in touch periodically since he retired.
Paul was a kind, compassionate person who always had a kind word and a willingness to help. He shared his love of music, art, and travel which enriched the lives of many of us. He will be greatly missed by many of us who have known him through the years.
My sympathies to all of Paul's family.
We are sending our love and best wishes for comfort to you. The Peeples family has always been a special part of our lives. We have such wonderful memories of the years at First Presbyterian Church and the North End neighborhood.
May God bless you!
Jerry and Judy (Phillips) Allen
Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Peeples family and their friends at this difficult time.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always HaveBuckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Faith Looks Up to Thee
Words by Ray Palmer, 1830
Music by Lowell Mason (08 Jan 1792 - 11 Aug 1872), 1832
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
While life's dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
When ends life's transient dream,
When death's cold sullen stream
Over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
