My condolences to the family of Peter Palmer. He was my inspiration when I had the good fortune to play Abner in community theatre in 1986.

I always enjoyed seeing Peter Palmer and his family at Guardian Angel Church in Allendale NJ in the late 1950s. He was truly a magnificent looking guy and fun to talk to when I was a boy.

Thank you, Peter for your kind and wise words to me, including the fact that these characters we portray are human, just like the actors portraying them. Thank you for your gift of knowledge for teaching me how to sing and also how do a proper Evil Eye Fleagle foot shuffle. Thanks for the kindness and the stories and the support. Thank you for the impact you had on my life. Rest in Peace, sir. Knock 'em dead up there.
