    Peter was a wonderful friend and I miss him very much. We had a long history, starting in New Jersey in the mid 70’s. Later on, by chance, we both ended up in the Boston area. I was always amazed by the wide range of things I could talk about with Peter, from very down-to-earth mechanical stuff to history, the galaxy and many things in between. His mind knew no bounds, along with being a very earthy guy with a great sense of humor. We had lots of fun together. After a number of years, our history together and common interests became a very fulfilling pleasure, like a special rare aged wine.
