an ode to peter.

I consider it a privilege to have known Peter.  I consider it an honor to be his daughter (we dropped the “in-law” part long before I was technically an “in-law”).  And I consider it a most devastating tragedy that he was taken from us six days ago.

I cherish the moments I shared with Peter.  And I wish there could be more.  He was a man of deep compassion, utmost sincerity, profound intellect and impeccable wit.  I admired his ability to effortlessly transition from humorous quips to insightful wisdom.

Peter was a man of great strength; he persevered through the most difficult circumstances.  He has left an amazing legacy, with his family, friends, students, colleagues and community.  Well done, faithful one.  Well done.
