I wanted to tell you how very privileged I feel, that I have been able to enjoy Pete's company, his humor, his kindness and his friendship.
You may not know it, but I have learned so much from him over the years, even though my time with him was way too short.
He has been a great role model for many of us. Not only in his extraordinary work as a manufacturer and provider of extra ordinarily high quality products, but as mentor, and as a friend.
The influence of his shining example will live on in all the people he has touched throughout his life. I am most fortunate to be among them.
