LETTER: Remembering Peter D'Agostino

Peter D’Agostino was one of the rare people who always gave more than he received. Despite facing more than his fair share of adversity, especially over the last few years, you could always count on him to greet you with a smile, a hug, and as much friendly conversation as you had time for. It was impossible to see him and not leave with a smile on your face. While it is a tragedy that he and his charisma, intelligence, and love are no longer with us, he was a man who gave everything he had and left the world a better place than he found it.

One of Peter’s friends recently remembered something Peter said about someone he admired: “We are all dust, but some of us are gold dust.” Peter, you were gold dust. We will miss you.
