    Peter was our photographer for our wedding in 1975. From that time on Peter, my husband and I communicated online with numerous jokes and funnies. He was an excellent photographer and a very social and amicable guy.

    My sincerest condolences to all! RIP Peter

    Love Jo-Ann Janess and Family
