Wow, that is shocking news - I understood he was unwell but I didn't know it was quite that serious!
I did not have the pleasure of meeting him but his demeanour on the forum was always that of a gentleman.
My condolences to his family and friends.

Lordy, Jon, I didn't know that he was ill. Thank you for passing that on to us all.
That's really sad news.
Whilst I didn't really know Peter in person, he was certainly a friend in cyberspace.

That's a shock.
I met Peter once and he seemed a really nice genuine person.

Thanks for passing that on Jon.

I'd only know Peter for a few years and not especially well but as has been said he was a gentleman and will be missed. I will pass on your condolences to his family.

Hey Jon, thanks for passing that on. Sad news indeed. I had never met Pete but, echoing all sentiments above, he seemed a straight-up decent bloke from his posts on the forums...

He got a good send off, a nice service and there must have been upwards of 150 people filling the little church so there was standing room only for some, obviously a well liked chap.
