Dear Joan, Angela and I extend our deepest sense of sympathy to you and your family. Peter was one of kind, a real gentleman and I enjoyed our Friday meetings at the Club where he would give me a bit of good natured "shtick" with a wry smile and a twinkle in his eye. Your deep sense of loss will be tempered by celebrating a long, fulfilling and happy life together as you remmeber all the good times. Our thoughts are with you, Terry and Angela
