Rita, I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your wonderful husband Pete. Pete and I shared some wonderful moments as teenagers and I will never forget them. I also can't say enough about the addition he added to our house in 1983 before my wife Jean and I got married. Whenever I needed him I could always call him and say Uncle Petey I've got a question for you and he never hesitated to answer or come over and help me. Please accept my sincere condolences for you and your family's loss. Sincerely Bob David
