Peter and I became good friends during his stay here at Buckingham South. He taught me so much about life and how to not let people take advantage of me (except for him, of course) :-) Peter, I'm going to miss you busting my chops in the office everyday and I won't forget the countless conversations about Rockaway Beach and stories from your life we had just cruising around town from doctors appointments to bank meetings to the gym. Peter, you were a good man and you will be missed dearly. My condolences to Marty and the whole family. It was an honor and a privilege tot take care of dad in his final years.
