1) We are so saddened that Peter has passed. George stayed close to Peter throughout his life: they were like brothers. We have spent so many family events together, and George met Peter and Jimmy very frequently for morning coffee. They never ran out of conversation and ancestral stories. May Peter’s memory be eternal. George loved going to my Class of 67 get togethers, knowing Peter and Jimmy would always be there. So many wonderful memories. Peter will be sorely missed. Love, Joni Tsoukalas
