Pete was a great guy. Helped out a lot of people. I was just thinking of him the other day. Almost like he stopped to say goodbye. Happy Trails Friend God Bless You.

Thank You Pete for all you did for others. If someone needed something and you didn't have it you'd find a way. Thank You for the limo ride home from the hospital when my son was born. Most of all for being a good person to all.
May you rest in peace.
