You will forever be in my thoughts. I have many fond memories of you. The cruise, the entertainment at the Elks ( how beautiful you and my mom sounded together. ) Your "accent" and the fun I had mocking you. The hugs and smiles you gave so freely when I came to visit. And your love and devotion to Eydie. Rest in peace Peter. Love you...
