Dr. Moscow handed me a candle and match to light it when things felt very dark. I feel very blessed to have experienced his gifts the few times I did and think of him often. It's many years since his loss for his family and friends, but I know the loss continues. Perhaps knowing how important he was to others helps. The world misses him.

I think of you often and the contributions you made to humanity. Trish, I think of you often and wonder how you are doing. And I think of the staff from your organization. My honor of working with Peter was through the United States Psychotronics Association and the wonderful blend of hard and soft science information and research it provides. Peter, your legacy, passed on by Bob Beutlich, and so many others is still going strong. Blessings on your soul and whatever adventure you are now experiencing. You were a good friend and a great man. Blessings and love to you and your lovely wife.

In 1992, I was overwhelmed with tragedy and deaths in the family. So terrible that I developed a serious case of shingles. As if some goddess was listening, Dr. Moscow was in town, and at the urging of several close friends familiar with him, I made an appointment. The minute I walked into the room, I knew he was special. All my children have four legs and/or feathers, and I had just lost my dearest horse. We were together for 31 years. He not only knew about her, but said she had been patiently waiting for me to arrive. He gave me details that only she or my family would her habit of climbing up the back porch, and opening the screen door. He also made contact with one of my ancestors from the 12th Century who liked to watch me work with my horses. I knew about this person from a family tree researcher my aunt had researched. I recorded the session, and still cannot listen to it yet, but I sometimes feel he is out there looking out for us. He told me that I would be seeing her out with my other horse happened about a month later. My sincerest condolences and love to his family and anyone who has been touched by his wonderful spirit. It's been 25 years, almost to the day. I will never forget him!

My wife and I just learned of Peter's death. Our condolences to his family. We met Peter through our late mutual friend Eldon Byrd. Peter came to Charleston,SC to visit with us and assist me in my research. A great person which we will never forget.

I went online today to retrieve Dr. Moscow's phone number so I could schedule an appointment...instead, I was shocked to find this Guest Book. Dr. Moscow was extraordinary! He touched so many lives, and blessed my life with his wisdom and special gifts, for which I am forever so grateful. Sending my belated heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
Until we meet again...rejoice in the house of the Lord, Dr. Moscow, and thank you!

If I had known I certainly would have attended his memorial. He was a wonderful man, with a beautiful heart and a real gift. And though I hadn't seen him for some years, I was always comforted to know he was around. I'm very saddened to hear he passed. Sympathies to the family & close friends.

Wow, I am so sorry to read about Dr. Moscows death in the news paper. I was a client of his for some time now. He helped me recover from my mothers death as well as other family members. He taught me not to be afraid of death. He was and still is such a wonderful person.

Remembering Peter with much fondness and gratitude. He was a remarkable man with an important mission in life. I'm continually grateful for his healing skills and generous nature. And for the wonderful conferences he orchestrated to explore the nature of reality. He used his many skills in the service of mankind with great love and compassion. He played an important part in my life and other family members while I lived in Louisville. Sending condolences to his family and many friends. Lynne V.

I was very shocked to hear of Peter's untimely death which I only recently discovered through his cousin Martin Stein here in London. I knew Peter in Dublin in the 1960s when he was studying at Trinity and he was a dedicated and inspired student. I left Ireland in 1970 lost touch with lots of people and never saw him again. However years later I met Martin in our golf club and discovered they were cousins and got snippets of news. He was a lovely and talented person even at a young age and I was delighted to read such glowing tributes about him. My deepest sympathy to his wife and family in their great loss.

WOW! I had no idea that he had passed away until I received an email a few days ago. I am truly stunned. I am also truly grateful that Dr. Moscow was able to help relieve my son of his "Night Terrors" more than 9 years ago. He will be greatly missed here on this earth plain. I am sure that Dr. Moscow is an asset on the other side. A gift to us all.

I was introduced to Dr Peter Moscow in late 2007 and immediately realized I had met a remarkable man.
After a long and exhausting road of taking conventional medicine I traveled from New York to Louisville, KY to learn more about the 'alternative' approach to dealing with my pressing health issues - a huge lifestyle change in which Dr Moscow, and his wife Tish would became my mentors.
I have much gratitude for Dr. Moscow and the tremendous insights he shared with me over the years.
He was a truly exceptional man on every level and a beacon through my critical health days.
It is thanks to his introductory work that 4 years later, I have been able to overcome my illness, and still walk drug free.
Remarkable - to think that my conventional doctor had written me off to the Oncologist.
The wondrous thing about Dr. Moscow was the sensitivity he possessed towards life, and ultimately, his patients, and this came from the love for his work.

Peter, you will be missed terribly and although you're not physically present in this realm you will be forever with us through past, present and future.
Thank you for everything you shared. You will always be remembered.

My thoughts and prays go out to Tish and the family in this difficult time.

With heartfelt sympathy,

I just received notice of the sudden death of Dr. Peter Moscow a lifelong beloved friend from my early years in radio in Louisville, KY. Peter was a wonderful friend, and we investigated the Miracle House and numerous subjects of Parapsychology. Peter was a guest on my radio shows on WAKY in Louisville,and 700 WLW radio in Cincinnati.OH. I was planning a visit Louisville. Kentucky this summer and was looking forward to seeing Peter. Peter was amazing and he will forever be in my heart and thoughts. My thoughts go out to his beloved wife and children may you feel peace and love. I'm deeply saddened to hear of your loss. His irish accent was a delight, a man of compassion and vision. Our belief in life beyond he has found now and we will see him there. Reflections of love ~ Lynn Gladhill

And the same goes for you in this next phase of your life. So in this time of need, please take comfort knowing there was a higher purpose for this. We will miss him greatly.

Dear Tish and family, What a shock that Peter has crossed over so soon... too soon! So sad for those of us who remain on this side for a time, but so glorious and liberating for him! He must have some even greater works that he must accomplish now. Peter's extraordinary spirit will continue to shine on, in so many ways and in so many hearts, including mine. So honored and grateful is this soul to have walked along this earthly path with him for even just a short while. So many fond memories. And, even though the relationship has changed, I hope it will continue in another form.
My love and prayers for many blessings, go out to you all.
