  • Mary & family-
    . I was blessed to have the honor of caring for Peter and getting to know you as a family. Mary, your love and dedication to him was admirable…a love that was so strong and beautiful.. Stay strong. My thoughts and prayers are with you.


  • Mary and Ashley and Jake….
    That’s a wonderful photo of Peter– showing his beautiful eyes and his mischievous sense of the world — he loved life and also was aware of its absurdities. He was patient in his illness much of the time—much much more than most of us could have been. I am grateful to have known him. He was lucky to have had all three of you to bolster his spirits.

  • To Mary, Ashley and Jake,

    Some of our very best memories are from Kenwood St. and Peter was part of them. He was a genuinely nice guy and a great neighbor. We are sorry to hear about your loss.

    Thinking of you, Fred and Kath
