    Thoughts and prayers are with this family. Dan, is there anything they need or that we can do? This is absolutely heartbreaking.

    • I’m sure they appreciate the condolences but at this time I think all we can do is let them mourn.

  • ST21

    Man, that’s awful to hear. Makes me very sad. RIP

  • I am so, so very sorry for your loss.

    Such heartbreaking news. We are so sorry for their loss and will keep their family in our thoughts this season. I will be making a donation to TAPS in memory of Peter.

    • I’m going to do this too – no need to do it as POPville…and TAPS is amazing. His name will be read at our synagogue on Friday

    How awful. My thoughts are with them.

  • MVT

    Just horrible. Thinking of the family

    Another one of the Soldiers was an NYPD detective and NY National Guardsman. What an awful day.

    • he was on his third deployment. The sacrifice of our Guard/Reserve in the last 14 years has been immeasurable. Thinking of all of them and their families today and adding them to the list of those I remember every day. Awful.

    Heartbreaking –I’m so sorry for your loss.

  • absolutely heart breaking.
    If you feel the need to do something, there are a number of charities – I recommend Fisher House or TAPS. Would be happy to contribute to a POPville-wide donation.

  • Peteworth

    Sending love to the family

  • Grant Circle

    I’ll see you on the high ground big Sarge.

    May his memory be a blessing- a life taken far too soon. Condolences to bub and to pop.

  • Romina Andrades

    I’m so sorry for your loss, being at your restaurant you can tell how close this family is, and this is really sad news.
