Nine years you have left this world it’s so unreal to even talk about you in the three person, I still remember that voice and how you laugh because I didn’t know anything about you then , But instead of taking it as a insults You aroused Me about instead but that was okay , when I was at my lowest point in life you come in to my life as a friend who listen instead of judging me , But I still remember how you said was you born in a cave I said no and you said are you sure you don’t live in a cave I said no and we just laughed , I will always remember you and owe you so much , miss you Pete , oh by the way I finally come out of my cave green man .

Brother Beloved. Written in 2013
For it has taken me so long to mindfully endure
Three years grief heralds the following lore
Therein thy fortress of once brazen anger
Adorned animation eclipsed by pain
Such charismatic penchant that was our beloved brother
Whom thou witnessed an untimely fall from grace
And in his mourning, heeded long by those who knew
Such scars unveiled an elixir ripe for his devil's brew
Found in liquid courage he named
And a bit of angel dust
Myriad images of a once broken soul
Long perhaps the time of 'October Rust'
For in these contentions, he mercilessly fought
Such battle cries herein
His inner demons paved the way
Looking to the eternal for death he once sought
Silence bestowed his crimson lips that fateful day
Now in years forward, still mourned by those who adore
Haunted whispers of that alluring voice
Lying beyond the realms of Heaven's door
A sacrifice in the end, in which no one escapes
Enchanted emerald eyes did he find
What lurks beyond those 'pearly gates'
To behold the golden key for which his spirit may soar
Long live the Green Man,
May you be evermore...
"I miss you. I Really Miss You."

still miss u so much Peter-it feels like yesterday that we lost you. 9 years since your beautiful soul left this world and there is a large hole in it because of it. I hope you finally found peace and that you are laughing and happy now because you deserve it. I hope you are surrounded by your family and felines that loved you and we all still do here too.

Happy Birthday Peter. You left us far too early. You're loved, missed and thought of daily. You mean so much to me and many others. I know I'll see you in Heaven one day friend, until then.. I'll love you to death,

Wrote while listening to ‘Suspended in Dusk’ 
An angel roams in heaven
Within the still of the night
Like picture stills lost in time
The eternal breath that is our light
Was how you lived your life
And then, you were gone . . .
Emerald eyes might I entice
Your wraith that hides
Behind the curtain call
Searching for your prime
You were lost in time
Yet, your fire still burns
In the souls of us all . . .
For what can I surmise
By those misty morning eyes
Your cadence in that old familiar song
From afar I hath observed
All through the years while
Your white light eternally burned
Both wicks well into the early birth of dawn . . .
Those emerald eyes did I go blind
By the dice karma had rolled
Cast aside you were one of a kind
Peered upon by those
Who could see into your soul . . .
While inside, those left behind hath cried
Wondering how it all went wrong
In years since your demise
I hid behind thy disguise
Beyond the brisk leaves
Of that autumnal morning psalm . . .
Emerald eyes, may peace be with thee
Whispered by the shadows within us all
When the Gods had their say
That fateful moment you were whisked away
Suspended in dusk we shall remain
Your timeless essence felt within
Taken by the crisp breeze
Of an early morning fall . . .
Many blessings to the Ratajczyk family.

Happy Halloween in Heaven Peter our far reaching "brother" to many. Your presence is missed daily, strongly felt from other planes that you realm within and you spoke of. Your music always soothing, bringing back how much you affected and meant to so many people through your words and voice. But at the same time it is heart breaking as your life was cut short by your untimely passing. It's hard to comprehend what music you would have written for the world as there was so much left for you to share generously through your abilities. Thank you for all the sweet memories and fun throughout our childhood together, your genius as a profound composer and linguistics, as a lyricist and your nature as a man.

The first time Type O negative hit my ears I was hooked. When paired with your voice, it resonated so much deeper. It's B.S that your time came when it did. You had way too much left to say. You're mourned greatly by your loved ones...and us Eternal Fans are left with the skat that's called music these days. I bet you're giving Prince hell.....
Posted by William Grover on October 18, 2018
I miss Peter's artistic contributions to the world of music so much, and of course his truly unique sense of humor, personality and world view. Him and the rest of the guys in Type O Negative were such a huge influence on me growing up and they still are to this day. The music and words he left us with will live forever and continue to act as audio therapy for generations to come. A true hero of mine. Please do not come here to mourn, but to celebrate. We love and miss you Peter. Continue to R.I.P.
Posted by Courtney McQuaid on October 17, 2018 have touched so many people, myself included. Your memory will last forever with the music you created. You will never be forgotten. Loved and missed always..
Do not stand at my grave and weep 
I am not there. I do not sleep. 
I am a thousand winds that blow. 
I am the diamond glints on snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 
When you awaken in the morning's hush 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
Of quiet birds in circled flight. 
I am the soft stars that shine at night. 
Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die.
Rest easy Peter..we love you!

Another tribute is on a site called there are Type O Negative rooms you can go into in virtual 3D! The rooms are, OctoberRust and TheGreenMan

I remember the day you passed away. I was so sad. I've listened to Type O Negative since I was an early teen and fell in love with your voice. I haven't listened to Type O in a while and these last couple of weeks have been really hard for me. One day last week I woke up with a Type O song in my head (can't remember which) and I've been listening to nothing but Type O since. Odd since I hadn't listened to your music in such a long time. Listening to your music has definitely helped and makes me feel so much better... especially when times are tough and hard to endure. Thank you Pete. I never knew you but I will always love you. You live on in our hearts and memories. I never got to meet you but I do so wish I had. <3 I hope you have found peace some place else. I know you became religious a few years prior to your death and I hope there is a Heaven only because I'd like for you and other loved ones I lost to be somewhere.
