I remember the first day we met at BHR. You called me right away and we have been together ever since. 13 years. You always were happy and showed your love thoroughly. I have all your little notes and texts. I miss you dearly. I. remember your Dad being here and always listening to Irish music and wanting his pancakes and we'll done bacon. Your family meant the world to you. We have so many memories here at the house of your Mom and Dad. You helped me through a lot and you did it with such grace. I will love you always and forever

Rest In Peace my brother, my friend. Memories of your infectious laugh and kind soul will always bring a smile to my face. You were a wonderful uncle to my boys and an unforgettable big brother. Even when I was just a little pain in the butt kid you always wanted me around. I will never forget that and I will never forget you. Godspeed on your journey. I love you. Peter
