So very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Although I only on rare occasions he was always so happy and pleasant to chat with. He had a special way of relating that made you feel like you were the only person in the room when he talked to you. Sending you all lots of love and prayers at this difficult time. Uncle Peter will be missed!
