Peter James Breen was born on September 2, 1919, near Coopersville, Michigan. He was the eleventh child of John and Grace Breen. He spent most of his adult life as a minister of the Word of God in western Michigan. Breen began writing down his memories for his children and grandchildren when he was in his eighties and continued to add to them in bits and pieces until his death in 2015. Collected here are, often in his own words, the memories of Peter Breen. His daughter Mary (Breen) Veldkamp and his grandson Benjamin M. Veldkamp have edited them for clarity and chronological integrity. (B)
