So sorry about your loss! I will miss my Uncle Peter! He and my dad can now go fishing on the boat together again, bringing a case of Dawson beer with them!

“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is."
