Default A heartfelt thank you

The support you've all provided me over the past week has meant a lot to me and my family. The flowers, cards, and attendence at Nancy's visiting hours and service helped me through a very difficult few days.

What attracted me to TDIParts was, most of all, the people I had met through TDIClub. I can't remember a time in my life where I have met a group of people who are so diverse, yet share so many core values. I know will rely on your caring, support, and sense of humor in the coming months.

It means more than I can describe to know you're all out there, only a post or a PM away. I hope to see you soon, under better circumstances. Thank you.

Peter... so sorry to hear of all that happened. I'm sure I speak for a great many of us when I say that if there is anything I/we can do... please don't hesitate to say the word. My thoughts are with you and your family as well.

I'm sorry this is the first I'm hearing (reading) this. You and your family will be in our prayers my friend.

Peace,

Thanks for the support, guys, and no worries about not knowing. I was quiet about this and word only got 'round to some people. It means a lot to me to know that you've seen this message.

I was called by Chris Hill on Friday morning to push my scheduled appointment to the late afternoon. When he told me of your loss I was dumb founded.

You are knowned to be a man who has always done everything in your power for the greater good. You are a great person Peter.

Condolences to you and your family,

Sincerely,

BrianCT

Stay steady my friend, as I'm sure you will. And I'll see you under better circumstances sometime this year, when you come down to dyno

Peter,

Your loss reminded me of something that BeetleGo and I talked about after his stroke: what a supportive group TDIClub is. For your good times—“Absolutely, you should buy it!!”--to the hard times when you need someone to just be there. It makes me proud to be part of such an incredible network. And Scott and I are beginning to learn to tune out the “Absolutelies!”

…And you had a VERY understanding wife! As the pain subsides and the memories blossom, Nancy’s wisdom will certainly live on!

--Chris & Scott

Just because the services have concluded doesn't mean that you've left our thoughts for one minute.

Looking forward to those better circumstances...
We'll help to get you there.

Simply saying "condolences" doesn't quite convey the gravitas felt by so many in this community for you and your family.

Our thoughts, hopes and wishes are with you.
