Lovely service, glad I could watch it from home as unable to attend. Peter came to Adelaide when he was about 17years old and stayed with our Grandma in Kingswood whilst he work at the Kingswood post office (can’t remember exactly how long). We lived in the next street so got to know Peter. I have caught up briefly from time to time (usually funerals)and always found him to be smiling and friendly. Regards Denise (and on behalf of Veronica Morris and family).
