Peter and his family have been a part of my life for very many years and I will always treasure my time spent with Peter and Henrietta and their children. He will be greatly missed but I will always smile when I think of his kind and gentle heart.

As I watch the sunset over the San Francisco Bay, the church bells ring, closing the end of indeed a sad day-Yet a time to remember Peter and all of his glorious travels across the seas, his love for his family and friends...What a gentleman we have lost. I believe he will return to this world with all the love, wisdom and laughter he has grace us with in our memories. With our deepest sympathies, Lis and Lora Graham
