    This is very sad. I got to meet Peter at a Dallas convention around 2004 I think, and he was very nice. My aunt even worked for the company that did his taxes, when he lived in Granbury. God Bless Peter's family, and all those who still love him.

    This is so sad.

    Chewie is and always will be my favourite character.

    RIP Peter and may the force be with you.

    Good Bye Father, your son you passed the torch to, is in the place.
    He will continue what you started.

    Such sad news. Even though I never met him, his passion for the GFFA was obvious from documentaries, social media, fan conventions. He seemed a passionate, but very down to earth gentleman.
    A sad day for SW, but we must be happy that he made what could've been a laughable character, a real hero - someone everyone wants to hug.

    RIP to the Greatest Co-Pilot in the Galaxy
