I just seen Peter in the Dollar General in Hathaway about two weeks ago. We visited for about 20 minutes and he was so happy to be back home here in LA. He was telling me about living in Destin, FL, and we laughed and joked about old times. I hadn’t seen him in years and I am glad we got to visit one last time. Peter was a comical guy, and the fact that he had grown a beard was funny, because he said my sisters could not believe I have a beard because I was always cleaned shaved. God rest your soul Peter and prayers too your family.

Please accept our sincere condolences in Peter's transitioning. Peter was always the same no matter where you met him--wearing that big smile. May he smile along the Angel's with the company of Heaven. Rest easy.

Peter, you always had a smile on your face, and very kind. I enjoyed the stories you shared, especially when I would see you at Cajun tales.

God bless your family and your soul rest in paradise.

Phil and Jo Ann,

Peter would come to my office regularly when I was the secretary at Welsh Elementary School. He was so cute he could have been a child model!! Those blue eyes looked like they had lights behind them and his precious smile melted my heart every time!

God bless you and your family! Love you!
