    He will be missed. To his family, my deepest condolences. He was a great guy. He came to my restaurant many times. I am proud that we have a picture of him eating our food on the wall. He loved the people that worked for me. He really cared about them. There's so many great things to say about him and I can't seem to put them into words. Rest in peace, Buddy.

    I am so happy that I had the chance to meet such a wonderful person. Everytime he came to see me the first thing out his mouth was 'how's the baby?' asking about my daughter. He will be deeply missed by all.

    Ann and I met Peter as we delivered Meals on Wheels, on Saturdays. He always had a big smile on his face and a booming voice. We enjoyed seeing his collection of "ink art". Such a wonderful talent will be missed!
