My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Angela and Peter’s sisters at this terrible loss. Peter was a wonderful friend and colleague to many of us at The Lotos Club in New York. His loss is a terrible shock. Peter was a kind, intelligent and generous person with an easy smile and steady warmth. He bravely served our country. He was a Director at Lotos and he was a kind and generous friend to many. I will miss him as many will at the Lotos Club.
My sympathies to Angela, his sisters and all who feel his untimely loss.
