I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Peter and can hear his laugh as I write. Over time I have come to appreciate the lessons he taught all of us about being true servant leaders. Peter was one who lead by example - thank you for the blessing of knowing him.

You are in my thoughts and prayers

Your Dad will stay in my memories forever as a wonderful man that had a spark in his step. He was a big influence in my life and a great mentor. I will never forget him.

Ann. I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Peter through you--at the opera and at other social events--but he certainly was an intelligent, gregarious and spirited person--just like you! My thoughts and prayers are with you and Peter's family. Paul Sabby
