Back in 1981, I met you as a lively and energetic youngster when your parents brought you and David to come to live in TX.
I was overwhelmed when you and Evelyn served me and Joseph with "Tea Ceremony" at your wedding, an etiquette reserved for parents and elderly relatives. Very heartened to see you and Evelyn in your blissful union.
You are the most devoted and loving husband. Although you depart in a hurry, you brought with you full of love and care from Evelyn and all of us.
" Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil.
A life of joy and peace."
Dear Peter, you have touched the lives of all who were privileged to have known you.

It was sad and sudden for us to lose a 'half son".
Now you are in God's embrace, bringing with you a life filled with fun and overflowed with love.
Do rest in Peace,

I am so shock to lose you as my friend, my Wikipedia, food consultant, shopping adviser. Both You and Evelyn were so nice to spend weekends with me every time when I was on business trip in San Jose. You brought me to have Angus beef that was my first time. You gave me private ski lesson last year that I enjoyed so much by “rolling” down half way from the mountain,. Both you and Evelyn were so patient to follow me and pick up my ski, googles each time I fell down. You have “poisoned” me to get addicted to this sport. Every time you came to town, you knew better than me where was the best place for BBQ pork. All these memories are with me. You will be missed and I am sure you are still around and watching us!

This is Uncle 2, Leo. We are so sad to lose you.
We met at Tai Ping Koon Restaurant when Evelyn introduced you to our family. You left strong impression as being carefree and pleasant. We were so happy for Evelyn to have you. We'll always miss your cheerful smiles and jokes in our family gatherings. You'll be fondly remembered and sorely missed.
May you rest in peace.
Yvonne, Toby and Isaac.

Peter has been my tennis buddy and we played every week for years. Not only was he a hard hitter, he was also amazingly agile and chased down shots all over the court. There was one time I sent him chasing a shot diagonally across the court and he went crashing through the door of the fence surrounding the tennis court. People on the other side of that door were so surprised. After he moved to Las Vegas, we didn't play as much but whenever he was in the area, he made time to play with me and I really appreciated that.
However, the best part of playing tennis with Peter is not just the tennis, but also the time we spent just talking about stuff after playing. We would sometimes stand in the parking lot talking for an hour as he always had some interesting stories to tell. He loved traveling to Japan and I, despite being from Japan, often learned of the new Japenese trends from Peter during our post-tennis talk. He also introduced me to Rock Band which I enjoyed so much, I ended up buying a real electric guitar.
Rest in peace my friend.

Peter was one of the happiest persons I ever met. He always had a smile and was quick to laugh. He was one of those friends you could see only occasionally and still have a great relationship with. I will never forget the time we met for lunch at Red Robin and laughed so much we barely finished our meals. He and Evelyn made a perfect couple and when he said soulmate, I believed it. He lived a great life and touched a lot of people with his enthusiasm. Rest in peace my friend.

It is hard to accept the fact that you have left us so suddenly, before we were ready to say goodbye. What moves through us is a silence sadness. I still remembered us chatting about your ski trips, and how you liked the wonderland chair at Niseko. I remembered thinking you must be good and I got jealous, I still haven't got the guts to get on the wonderland chair yet. It seems like I can still hear your cheerful voice and your very characteristic laugh. You have always been like a brother to us, and you will be missed dearly and never forgotten.

I knew Pete from UT. We both loved computers and video games. We even "rented" video games and made photocopies of the manuals so when the game asked you to look up the 5th word on page 217, paragraph 3 we could look up the word to continue playing. We were pretty poor.
Also, the fact that he never liked using the A/C in his car because it would decrease the car's performance (as he put it)... well, that became unbearable at times in the Texas heat.

Pete was an amazing friend, kind, supportive, and always honest. He put up with my crazy college antics and spent many nights with me and Eric Lyders playing video games and eating out late at Denny's. I will always admire his ability to focus and execute on a life that made him happy - from moving to California, to marrying Evelyn, to going on new adventures continuously. Your life has been full of wonderful memories. Thanks for allowing me to be part of it. I will miss you.
