Peter was a wonderful guy and friend. We have lots of great memories of him, when we would go to (John) Dads birthday parties over the years. And I also have great memories when I would hang out with Karen when we were younger. He will be missed by many. All the best to the families. - Posted by: Alvin and Phyllis Hiebert (friends ) on: Jul 03, 2012
