  5. Sandy and Ann Crawford :

    We are so sorry to have missed Peter’s funeral. We would have been there if we had known when it was – I just happened to look up his obituary Saturday evening. We feel so badly that we missed this.
    Peter was a dear friend and a wonderful person. We both feel honoured to have known him. He always spoke so highly of his family and his beloved wife, Tina. Sandy and I are lucky to now have met quite a few members of his family. We grieve with you and we hope that you are comforted by the loving memories you have of your husband, Dad, Grandpa and Great-Grandfather.
    With deepest condolences,
    Ann & Sandy
