  3. Uncle Peter you were an amazing Uncle and person. You always had the patience of a saint and have very fond memories of you as a little girl up to when I left Houston. I so wish that I had stayed in touch with you more. But the world lost a great man. I hope you are no longer in pain and in a better place now. May we meet again in the future.
