Libby Its unfortunate we have never met. I had the pleasure to get to know peter through his mechanical antics out of your garage. We shared common interests in BMW bikes and mechanical transportation. So sorry for your loss. We are very close to Eileen and Larry. If you need help reach out through them. We are in town.
