    You took the Words right out of my Mouth, Zelda. Not only was I drawn to the Uniqueness of his Acting Ability in Roles during his younger years, but no one drew me in quite like “Lieutenant Columbo”. As far as I’m concerned, he gave us some of the best years in Television for a running “Series” of that time, and I can’t imagine those great Week-day Afternoons without him to look forward to watching. I absolutely Adored Peter, both as an Actor and a kind personable Human Being who, in later Interviews long after the Show ended, always had a big Smile and a Sunny Attitude. He was, and always will be, an Unforgettable Character who contributed greatly to my Fondest Memories of those Television years, and I too will really miss him. Rest in Peace, Peter.
