Peter and Irma were very close friends with my parents Bob and Carol Moran and after my father died they both made a deliberate effort to continue to have dinner with my mother. It meant so much to her. Peter was a very special friend to them both and a lovely and funny man. My brother Tod and I will keep the entire family in our thoughts and prayers.

A true gentleman and a consummate professional. Enjoyed our chats during breakfast in Sea Bright years ago. Always a smile and a kind word. Will miss you Petey.

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of "Maurice." I got to know him when we created Meridian Health in the late nineties. As the CEO, I got to know him well and enjoyed spending time with him. He had a wealth of information about most everything!! He was very involved at Riverview and was a member of the Board of Governors from 1974 until 1990. We will miss him!! Our thoughts and prayers are with his Family and friends. John and Maureen Lloyd
