    My most heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of the family during this time of loss. Uncle Pete was always a favorite uncle and his memories will always live on in my heart. He was always a pillar of strength in my mind because he had such strong arms. He always loved a practical joke and would love to pick on us when we were children. He will be missed by all of us!
