    I am so sorry for your loss. Though I never met Mr. Anderson, his wonderful daughter Jen told me so many great stories about how funny, gentle and kind he was. The family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I met Peter about 5 years before I started working at MWH. I had gone to see Dr. Masters because I was having trouble breathing. Peter performed a lung scan to rule out pneumonia or some other thing. I was very impressed with his knowledge and polite/friendly manner. The result, after several other tests, was that I had hypertension, secondary to fluid retention.

    By the time I started working as Hematology Supervisor, Peter was then working in the Nuclear Medicine department. We were blessed with a kinship that not many co-workers get. Peter was always available to help me (and others) with his expertise in computers, gadgets, etc. He was an excellent teacher, thorough, patient and funny, all at once. After he became the Supervisor of Nuclear Medicine, we would often have the opportunity to sit and chat about issues both professional and family.

    He truly felt like a kid brother to me.
    He showed me how a person could carry so much more of both pleasant and not so pleasant aspects of day to day life, and still come out loving, forgiving and supportive of all he new.

    Anyone who knew Peter was truly a fortunate person.
    So, I met Peter when I was 35. As I am now 75, I was blessed to have known this good man for over 40 years.

    Prayers to all his family and hope for peace in your lives.
