"Three years have passed, now, and I think of Peter and miss him every day. I miss his mischievous grin, but I cannot say I miss his cringe-and-sigh. Still, whenever I face difficult decisions, I ask myself "What would Peter say?" I don't always take his advice, but considering it always helps. I feel blessed to have him as my guardian angel."
"Two years have passed since Peter left this world. He will always remain in my heart, and although I miss him dearly, and always will, I sense him watching over us, sharing the occasional laugh together, consoling me in dreams.
Thank you, to relatives and friends who have been so supportive these past few years. Your kindness helped me heal, and gives me strength and courage to value today and look hopefully to tomorrow."
"Patere, remembered always for a kindness of spirit. Always missed."
"Still remembering the quiet voice and warm smile. Still think of you, Peter, and remembering those too-brief peaceful moments."
"To our loved ones, thank you for the many messages and memories of my dear Peter. On this, the first anniversary of his passing, I feel blessed and humbled to know he is remembered so fondly. I appreciate your kindness more than words can express. With very best wishes"
"I can't belive it's been a year since "we" lost Peter. I know he is looking down on all of us, We miss you Peter."
"It's hard to believe it's been a year. And still I think of Peter's soft voice and warm smile. I will soon be visiting with Jeannie, and I will be further reminded of how much Peter is missed."
"Peter's soft voice and matchless, wonderful smile are among the things I miss. He was one of those people thou don't have to know very long before you feel warm and good in his presence. What a gentle, kind and lovely man."
"I've been thinking of Peter today on his birthday. We were friends for a number of years but had lost contact for many years until about a year before he died. I am very grateful for the opportunity to reconnect and to know that Peter and Jeannie were living such a happy life together. Thomas Campbell said it best: "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.""
"Well mate it's your birthday so taking this opportunity to leave my thoughts. It seams such a long time ago to our time at RAF Boulmer in the late 60's but we had some fun among some fantastic people. It's such a shame we never got together in later life but I will always remember you with fondness. Cheers Pete & Per Ardua."
"Peter is still very much missed and Loved."
"Peter and I were hired by Imatron at the same time and shared the first 2 months with the company training together. We had actually worked for EMI Medical at the same time some years earlier but didn't meet until working for Imatron. He was a friend and I always enjoyed his humor, I will miss him."
"I knew Peter at EMI and Imatron. Always engaged with current issues, ready to don his wizard hat and wave the magic wand to sooth a customer with frazzled nerves. A fountain of wisdom in his many technical bulletins which I still come across in my continuing work with EBT scanners, flying around the globe where Peter once flew with us in the fore-front of technology. We miss you."
"Rest in peace Peter. I knew Peter at Imatron Inc. in San Francisco, California. He was a quiet and thoughtful man with a sense of humor. May his memories comfort his family and friend."
"I remember Peter from EMI,Imatron,Toshiba days. One of the original Cat Scan people has gone. I always enjoyed his company if only for a few meetings or phone calls"
"I had the pleasure of meeting Peter in 2006 at our wedding but he and Jeannie always kept in touch. I will always remember him being a gentle person with a great sense of humour which was also shared by Jeannie. I glad that they were able to share such wonderful times. We will all miss you xx"
"Peter was a quiet, generous brother-in-law with a very dry sense of humour. He loved his life in the USA, and it's climate, but was always quick to jump on a plane and return to the UK for family celebrations. He will be remembered with love and affection by all of our family."
"Peter you were a great uncle who was loved and respected by all who knew you!
You will be sorely missed!
Paul & Nina Anya & Raya x"
"As long time friends and fans of Jeannie, we were delighted to meet Peter and see how happy they were together. We will remember Peter as a great and gentle guy."
"I have to say Peter cooked the best darn hickory smoked rack of ribs I ever tasted,... a great sense of humor & stoic attitude all the way."
"Peter and I found each other on facebook. I suppose we are some kind of cousins. We are certainly Challingsworth's and we look like brother and sister. Every contact I had with Peter was warm, affectionate and fun. I always thought that we would meet. I'm so sorry that I never had the chance to know him. Jeanette, I am so very sorry for your loss."
"I did manage to find two pictures of Peter in my collection, from my husband Alan's 50th birthday party at the Matterhorn Swiss fondue restaurant in San Francisco. What a lovely evening, and even more special, it was the first time we had all of our closest friends in one place. Peter was quite game with the fondue, but not so sure about Jeannie... ;-)"
"Alas, I have no photos of Peter, but I did find one that he took of me last Labor Day, at the entrance to the Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge over Hoover Dam (I just posted it). Jeannie and Linda were too beat to climb up to the roadway, so Peter and I went and had a wonderful time together. I never allow my picture to be taken, but Peter was an exception, such was my fondness for him."
"I knew Peter for a short time. Jeannie is my cousin and I could see how happy he made her. But that wasn't hard for him to do, that's just the kind of guy he was. Will miss his "English" wit and sense of humor. Not to mention his steller BBQ. You will be greatly missed and thought of often. I know you will be looking down and keeping an eye on Jeannie."
"I cherish the lovely talks I had with Peter. I feel blessed to have had those brief times and to have known his wonderful smile and soft voice. I am sad that there will be no more, and i will always remember him."
"Peter Challingsworth was a friend and colleague during training for a career in the Royal Air Force that commenced in May 1963. For 3 years I enjoyed his company and humour. His spirit of fun was endearing and whilst always ultimately respectful of authority he had that special measure of discrete cynicism which is the hallmark of all good British Servicemen."
"I new Peter but a shot time. He will be miss by all that have known him in there lives. So my the Lord hold him close, and forever watch over him."
"Although we only knew Peter a short time, he will be missed in our neighborhood. He was a nice man with a wonderful accent! We know he is free from pain and in a better place. We hope your good memories, Jeannie, can help heal your pain. We are always here for you. We have enjoyed your friendship and thanks for sharing your great photos. With love, Cindy, Monte, Jen & Lisa Drew"
"I new Peter for a short time but I knew Jeannie for a few years. We worked together and our cubes were next to one another. I remember the day her and Peter got engaged and when they were preparing for their beautiful wedding in Canada. Such wonderful memories. I know that they were very happy together even though it was for a short time. Peter is now in a beautiful place."
