    I was fortunate to know Peter. I was a year behind Peter. Peter was good friends with my cousin Jerry. I played basketball with Peter at VHS and at Marvins Gardens in Cato. I also played with Peter in many barn games. There is no person more kind and loving as Peter. He was always able to see the good in everyone. Peter was a true friend to everyone he came in contact with. Deb and my prayers are with Peter, Eileen, and their entire family.
