I am so sorry for your loss
It does not matter how old or the state of health, it is always very hard to say good-bye.
Uncle Pete will be remembered for the twinkle in his eye and his perpetual smile.
Take comfort in knowing that he is resting in the loving arms of Jesus.
He is probably playing cribbage in heaven with his sister Hazel right now.
Take care of each other cousins
Keep his memory alive
Hugs and prayers for Uncle Pete and all of the family
Be Strong.........
Love you guys
