So many happy memories of both Marjorie and Peter, they were my baby sitters and I was a bridesmaid at their wedding.
Thankfully we were able to stay in touch after their move to America.
What a lovely man he was, I am sure Peter will be sadly missed by many.
I am sure both family and friends will have lots of wonderful memories to see them through the dark times.
God Bless you Peter Rest in Peace.
Your cousin across the pond.

Nick, I just saw this thanks to Dan’s post on FB. It’s never easy losing someone you care about, but it’s extra hard losing your parents. I lost my Dad in ’06 & Mom in ’16. There never is anything one could say to take the heart breaking to stop. It does help some to know they were loved by so many friends & families. I pray for peace & comfort for all your family. I can’t say I knew him but I do remember you from school. Your Dad sounds like an amazing man. May God bless all of you now & forever.
