RIP to our old friend Pete.
We met Pete in Saigon, Vietnam in 1966 and my husband Mike (who sadly died on 20 November 2019) often talked about the good times we had with Pete. He lead a very interesting life and spent a lot of time in Nepal after leaving Vietnam.

This is a great loss to our community. I met Mr. Peterson at the start of my nursing career and his encouragement and character meant a great deal to me. I often think about him and am sad to learn of his passing. His passion for causes was infectious.

We are saddened to read of Sheridan's passing. We have chatted several times regarding genealogy and the family. We are glad we were able to share his grandmother's photo with him, along with another family photo.
