Lilli, Ben and Dove: Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wonderful husband and father. I first met Preston in 1972 in Washington, D.C. and have treasured his friendship ever since. Please know that he and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am very sorry to hear of Preston's passing. He is a great loss to his wife and family and to the campaign against the menace of industrial wind turbines. He
stood up for his beliefs. I met him and Lilly in Dublin and found him to be a true gentleman.

Preston and I (and Paul Shivery) went through Officer Candidate School together in 1970, at, as you know, Ft. Belvoir, Virginia. Preston was always one of the singular members of our platoon: outspoken, articulate, and excellent company. I greatly enjoyed being his classmate and his friend.

In recent years we've traded a emails and had a few phone conversations with the aim of getting together sometime. We always had a reason to defer a reunion until a later, more convenient time and now, of course, it is terribly too late. Missing a chance to see Preston again is always going to be one of the bitter regrets of my life particularly because with age I should have learned my lesson.

I'm so sorry for your loss. The other entries in the guest book are heartening in their sincerity and impressive in their worldwide scope. It seems clear that Preston made his time count for something and I hope you can take comfort from that.

We remember with great warmth Lilli and Preston's visit to our site in Dunfermline Fife. Preston was a real Gentleman and so dedicated to his work on the impact of health issues caused by wind turbines. Lilli please do accept my sincere condolences.

Dearest Lilli,
grateful for the short time we spent together in 2012 here in Northern Germany, when we could welcome you in our home, as friends and allies in the fight against the tyranny of wind turbines. Three days in March, when we were close to each other, talking, laughing, fighting the same fight.
It was a great pleasure to see you both with so much love for each other. Since then, we think a lot about you both, and were sure, that we all would meet again one day.
Preston's wisdom, understanding, humor and compassion were unique. We are proud that he accepted us as friends.
What a loss for all, who knew him and especially for you, dear Lilly.
Whenever you need ears to listen, eyes to see, a bed to rest and a break - we have all this for you.
We will miss Preston so very much, and are so incredibly sorry about your loss.
Our thoughts are with you, dear Lilli and with the whole family.

Jutta and Marco, Neuendorf-Sachsenbande, Germany

On behalf of all our anti turbine fellows in Germany and our EPAW members, to whom your tireless work, your documentations and the Windwise-radio, brought help and support.
