The final part of Mr Peck’s speech at the AFI Life Achievement Award (1989) brought tears to my eyes:
“Veronique, you are the one girl for me. I’m not going to embarrass you by choking and telling you on national TV how much I love you. At least I think I’m not, but I’ll see you later.”
I’ll add that Mrs. Veronique Peck has been my role model since 2013, after reading some biographies on Mr Peck. She’s beauty, strength and wisdom combined. Not to mention her dress sense, which is timeless and yet so fun!
