My deepest sympathy to Shirley and Family......

Pete was a great friend and a wonderful individual. Many Sunday mornings Pete, P.J. Patterson, Chick Wagner and myself held what we called " church " down at the store and he cooked us breakfast on the grill. I have always been proud to call him a friend...... God's Speed Old Buddy........
