Comment from Jeff Samuels

Peter, you have been a tremendous colleague and a dear friend. Retirement or not, I will always think of you as a pillar of the language and technology community. You personified all of the best traits of our extended family (and that's what it really is - an extended family made up of people you actually LIKE): quick-witted; visionary; dedicated; welcoming; mentoring; and most of all engaging. We all owe you a debt of gratitude for your leadership and a great IALLT hug for your friendship. Cheers to you on your retirement...but don't drift too far.

It's hard to believe... a changing of the guard in IALLT and in the profession.

I can't imagine a more professional, yet personable person to have worked with. I especially recall your ability to handle sensitive relations with our international colleagues, and your dedication to the objectives of our profession.

Sue and I recall fondly our time with you and Maureen in Japan and Victoria. Maybe in our retirement we'll get up there again.

I wish you the very best in retirement. Put that walker away and have some fun!

Congrats Peter! I especially enjoyed our time together on the board. Your level head, reasoning and logic kept me going. It has been a pleasure working with you and getting to know you. Enjoy your retirement and I hope to see you now and again.

Hello, Peter.

Will you be in Victoria the last week in July? I'm coming through on my way from Alaska back to Seattle. Drop me a line bparkhurst@mercyhurst.edu

I'd love to congratulate you in person!

Comment from: Mike Ledgerwood

Surely Peter's still too young to retire! grin. I remember so many of the good times over the years (some involving "beers"), his lovely house and garden (yard) in Victoria as well as the sad times, such as Bob Henderson's death in Hawaii right after being in Victoria. Really enjoy remembering the intro. of the "talking stick", the first Canadians' performance at FLEAT, working with Peter as associate editor of the proceedings volume of that conference and working with him on supporting several of our colleagues for tenure and promotion.

What a valued colleague and friend he has been! I hope he'll still come to IALLTs in the future to keep us all on our toes!

Wishing Peter well, and a delightful and active retirement! I've had the pleasure of catching Peter in action on years of Board conference calls, and his diplomacy, quiet reason and political skills are peerless. His voice is one that I hope IALLT will continue to listen to in coming years.
