Honor from a not too distant family member

I remember your mother, Mary (also my great grandmother) expressing how much she loved you as I grew up. I could see the sadness in her eyes when she would talk about you, knowing she lost you. Thank you for fighting for our country. You will always be remembered. Love, your brother Tim's granddaughter

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LT Peter Frederick Cherney, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

If I should die...remembrances for LT Peter Frederick CHERNEY, USN...who made the ultimate sacrifice

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the sielnt dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
