Knowing and growing up with Peter and his family in Brewster is one of the high lights in my memory . Remember Peter in the marching band at Colgate, spending time with him in Albany . He was in Albany Law and I was across the street at Albany Pharmacy, both part of Union University. Attended your parents wedding in Danbury and now this!! I know it’s a while since your parents passed so I send belated condolences to you and all your family that I know and don’t know.
