  "Good morning, Peter - and Happy 58th Birthday, (Hard to believe it's been a little over 5 years!) We miss you and think about you always. Love you! Hunter and Savanah send their "hugs". Your big Sister, Candy"

Steve wrote: "Peter was a very good man and a caring man.  I remember back in 1999, when I was planning to get engaged he helped me make that day even a more memorable one.  At that time I lived in the suburbs of Washington DC and was coming home for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I was not really familiar with all the changes that the Lehigh Valley went through since I moved away in 1981 so I didn't know where to go for my very special evening.  I knew Peter would know so I gave him a call (from out of the blue) and he not only told me about a great romantic place to eat, he made a call and pulled some strings so I could have the main dining room to myself and my soon to be fiancÚ.   To top that, he arranged to have a four piece quartet play for my fiancÚ and me during the entire dinner.  He was a great guy and he will never be forgotten.
                                             We love you Peter. Your cousin,  Steve"

experience to say the least!
Another memory showing Pete's generosity was when watches with the
Ambassador logo were being raffled off at one of the games, my 7 year old
son was very upset that his number wasn't called; but, unbeknownst to my
son, Pete had a "special raffle" and his number was called... my son was
ecstatic.  He is now 21 and still has that watch.

His family used to baby-sit me when I was little and Peter actually gave me my first book on computers years ago, which got me interested in them till now, today I still have those books he signed. It's so sad about that tragic day of the plane crash and I think about him all the time. There is so much more I could write but don't have the words for except that I miss u peter, R.I.P.
                   Your cousin,

But oh, my foes, and oh, my friends --
It gives a lovely light.
