  2. Peter, I still remember you as a young swimmer when we all lived in El Lago. Then I had the pleasure of working with both you and your mother in real estate. I have many fond memories of you on your journey from boy to husband and father. Your parents were so proud of you. We will miss you.

  4. I met Peter when he first started out as a realtor. He was the nicest young man who was full of smiles, kindness, and goodness. Your family is in my prayers and you will be in my memory forever.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear of this. I knew he was sick, having seen him once at the Rec Center’s inside pool a few years back. I knew him before he was married, attended his wedding, celebrated the birth of his girls, worked with both Peter and Lorraine in real estate, and have many fond memories of this guy. R.I.P. Peter. I wish God’s comfort for all the family and friends. Loss of a husband is terrible, Shelly. My heart is sad for all of y’all.
