Dear Betty, Gerard, Claire,Kieran and Leanne
Sincere condolences to you all at this sad time. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to attend Peter's celebration of life so that I could hug you in person.
I always enjoyed a wee chat with Peter, he was a gentle fellow.
Love and hugs especially for the days ahead.
'Life is unending because Love is undying'
RIP Peter

Thinking of you, your mother and family, Leeanne. It was so nice that " Something Else" was able to entertain your father and others that day at Jean Sandel.

To all the Martin and Flynn Clan, my thoughts and prayers are with at this very sad time of loss. Peter was a wonderful husband to Betty, Dad to Gerard, Leanne, Claire and Kieran and Pop to all his grandchildren. A special son inlaw to Grandma FIynn, Unclue and brother in law. I know my boys will carry him in their hearts forever. A quiet, gentle, trusted, patient, tractor driving down a suburban street, kind of man. I am proud to know that my boys carry his names Peter, David and Martin. Love to you all.
