Your letters asking why a handsome, talented, and successful young actor should choose death over life can never be completely answered. One fact that is absolutely positive is that Pete's family, friends, and fans will miss him very, very much.
I interviewed Pete once. The afternoon of the interview was a particularly beautiful and clear California day. Pete wore a dark turtleneck sweater, levis, and boots. When we were introduced, he took my hand and flashed his dimpled grin! I knew instantly that I was going to like him--he was friendly and his answers to my questions were honest!
After the interview, I remember thinking
what a wonderfully warm, witty, and charming man he was. His laughter
was musical and a smile seemed to constantly play about his lips.
That's the way I choose to remember Pete.
