For ten years my friend, Peter was always there for me - even when I didn't realize that I needed him. In his own words he was my "Guardian Angel". I am honored to have known him and to have been called his friend.
rest well my freind . you have certainly earned it
Every once in a great while, a person comes into your life who makes a great difference and changes your life forever. I recognized from an early age that "Uncle Peter" was one of those people. It's 35 years since this beautiful man entered my life. I can say that he was the role model of a family man that I needed as a youth. It is no surprise that his daughters are amazing, lovely women. I admired how you respected them and how you loved them. Your sarcasm and lively wit kept me on my toes and kept me thinking of you long after our visit was over; I knew that with it came a warmth and caring that was sincere and truly rare. As a boy and as a man, you called me "honey" and "sweetie". A few years ago, I told you that you were the only man that I was okay with calling me those terms of endearment. I'll always remember you running down Pine Needle Lane with a Roman candle in your hand on the 4th of July, you finishing our crust at the local pizza place, whiffle ball games with the family, running through the sprinkler in our front yard (with my swim cap on), your intelligence, and your professionalism that I observed when you came into the Thayer Pharmacy that I worked at. Most of all, I'll remember your smile and your laugh and how you made those around you smile and laugh. Really, what's better than that in life? Thank you, Uncle Peter, for making a difference in my life in so many positive ways. As a father of two young boys, I know your influence has contributed to my being a family man, and that, ultimately, has made a great difference in my sons' lives.
We just heard the sad news of Peter's passing...he will be surely missed. He was a very special guy and we will never forget the good times we shared.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of grief.
