    Laura, You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. I so enjoyed learning much about the migratory birds and their patterns from Pete in the past few years. He was loved and admired by all my family at Denny Mfg. I know this will place a large void in your life, but can be filled with so many beautiful memories. My deepest sympathy. Diane Nall Variali

    Peter was such a kind, wonderful, and talented man. I have many fond memories of Peter on Dauphin Island and on mine and TC’s porch in Bayou La Batre. I still cherish those memories with all the family members. It was a.special and precious time. May you find strength from friendships during this time. My prayers to all
