  3. Dear Doreen,
    I missed Peter at the Kerby Dance on Wed. and was going to call to see if he was ok. How sad I am to learn that he has passed on. Peter was always so cheerful and I enjoyed his sense of humour and his love of dancing. I shall think of him every time I hear Waltz Across Texas as he said it was one of his favourites.
    Please accept my sincere condolences.
    Your Kerby friend,
    Ruth Prime

    Auntie Rene;
    It was so sad to get your message about Uncle Pete. Mom had just finished telling me about seeing him at the Kerby center. This was such a shock to all of us.

    We were all so happy to have spent Christmas Day with both of you at Richard and Kathleen’s house.

    We will miss Uncle Pete very much.

    Mike & Sandra McEachern
