Sunday, January 13, 2019Thank you, Claudette and family - thank you, Peter! – for a share in the circles of family and friends that Peter had around him, also in the gathering celebrating his life last Saturday. It was clear that these circles were also 'the life of his life,' and so how could he not be part of that gathering with us in the new life of mystery and love he has with us now. In the different periods and moments when Peter and I connected, it was always his hunger and intensity of presence and friendship which I treasured. I pray that I be faithful to that presence, that Peter help each one of us be faithful to that ‘life in these circles of life.’ Peace to all us.

He was a good and caring man. Sorry I couldn't be there today for hugs and storytelling. The memories will live on.

Wednesday, January 2, 2019My heart sank when I received the news. Although I am sure Pete is in a better place, where he can run free and oversee his family with joy, I know his presence will be missed by all those who knew him. He was a great leader and a person I called a friend. Run on Pete, run on...
