    To friends and family: I'm sorry for your loss. I wish I had been able to work and get to know Peter more so, but the last time I spoke with him his words of wisdom will remain with me forever. This is a tragedy which should not have occurred to such great person who will be dearly missed.

    Angela, Sarah and Anthony, I was shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden loss of your Dad. I only knew him a short time, but he always struck me as deeply in love with all of you and worked very hard to provide for you. Your dad and you are in my and my family's prayers. I pray for the eternal grace and blessings of God on Peter and on all of you forever.
