"Pete", just a note to let everyone know that you were a guy who had ideas for things before anyone even knew that something was needed. I really enjoyed working with you during the V-Con days. I know that you will be missed by your family. Maybe you can help God build a new people mover in heaven.

I was saddened to see your dad's obit in the Dallas News this morning. I recall that my dad knew your dad maybe through the Engineers' Club and he spoke highly of him. I lost Dad in 1995 and I know that you are never ready for it. Hope you and your family are doing OK.
