I'll miss you Pete. I'm so sorry. Till we meet again, my friend.
Sad to hear about this. I wasn't sure who he was at first because I didn't know him by name. But he was the one with the David Bowie picture that i would always see post the past few years. I don't know the real names of a lot of people here. I found his picture in the "show us your face" topic of the off topic section.
SCOTT13A real name - SCOTT SMITH
for some reason i am just now seeing this. very sad to hear about pete's passing. he is and will always be a part of the heart and soul of OG, and for that, this place will never be the same. RIP pete
I missed this. :(
Pete was one of my favorite people here, without a doubt. I loved how he spoke in song lyrics. I do that also, and I thought I was the only one. Even though my mathmos lamps weren't bought from him, he was there cheering me on, each time. He even had pet names for the lamps I bought. They will ALWAYS remind me of him.
I wanted to meet him one day.
My heart is heavy learning of Pete's passing. Last I spoke with him he was taking chemo and reassured me he would be fine. What a beautiful spirit gone too soon.
He always called me Lady Grinning Soul. Loved how he spoke in lyrics. We bonded over our love of music and his love for Bowie. I spoke with him shortly after Bowie passed and he said..." I have never been so affected by the death of someone I only knew through their music." He saw Ziggy as a young man and told me at that moment he finally felt comfortable in his own skin. Those that knew Pete can understand that.
One day out of the blue he sent me a yellow Jet. I am so grateful to have it. It feels like I have a small part of him and will always treasure it.
"Love on ya's" my sweet Rocketman! ♥
^ What a wonderful story Deb. Thank you so much for sharing it. <3
