So sorry I can't be there for you, Lois. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have lots of memories of your dad and being so amazed at the jewellery he used to make. He turned rocks into jewels! Also, just like my dad, he always wore the green work clothes... funny. Anyway, I love you lots and will try to get down to the coast this summer. Take care. Sharan

At the Pantry.. surprise visit, Mom, Lynne and me... he was so caught off card that we showed up at his dinner hour.. didn't want a picture taken, especially from a blackberry, but I made him.......sooo glad I did...
Uncle Peter was the closest thing person to a father that I had. I loved him dearly, was saving pictures for him of my recent trip to Hollywood with lots of pictures of faces that he would have enjoyed. Although he was older, he was always so strong and I really thought I would of had a chance to say goodbye... I am glad that I came to drop off his wheelchair personally in January before I left for LA.... however... so so, sad that I didn't get to say goodbye to this precious man.. who loved me and told me often as I told him. I will miss his stories of his past wars, his terrible jokes (although some were quite funny), spontaneous drop ins with him at the Pantry, his candies that he was so known for giving and the need to "wipe out his kitchen sink with a paper towel after you used it".. lol...

Lois... thank-you cos for sharing your father with so many of us.... he loved you .... and we loved him.....and love you too...

I love you Uncle Peter... thanks for being the best thing to a father I had and for your love and belief in me..... I miss you so much and will miss you.. until we meet face to face... Love Candace and family....
