    The fact that strangers felt compelled to sign this guest book speaks of the person Pete was. He positively touched the lives of everyone he met. I am grateful to have known him; I am a better person because of his influence in my life. He will be dearly missed.

    Although I did not personally know Peter, I knew him from our small community of OT's . He had shared with us just recently about a trip back to the Big Sur area, and how excited he was to be going. Please accept my heart felt condolences. God rest his soul. Kristine Reed, OTAC (retired)
