Pete had that special reality about him that could change anyone he met into a friend at any given time. The craziest part of the whole thing is that we have a lifetime of memories built around four years of knowing such a special person. We should all be thankful for those memories, for they have become one of life's precious gifts, which will never fade away. Remember that we have a best friend in the sky for life and for that we should all be thankful.

My thoughts and prayers are with the O'Neills during this time of sadness, but try to always remember those times when Peter made all of his friends and family so happy by bringing smiles to their faces.
Just wanted to say that we will never, ever forget you...You and your family are always in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for being a true hero!
