Patti, Bill and I are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. I know how dedicated you were to each other.
That kind of LOVE is rare and you were blessed to have found it. Take care, my friend.

It's never easy to say goodbye to the one with whom you've shared your life. But as I have learned first hand, as time goes by, the hurt is less intense, the tears are less frequent, and the memories more comforting. So, let's take joy in the full life that Pete had, the many lives that he touched, and the zest for living that he had.

Patti,
I was sorry to read of Pete's passing. I remember how much you loved him when you spoke of him to me. I hope you find peace. Though it has been many years, I still think of you fondly.

Patti,
I'm truly sorry for your terrible loss. Although I never met Pete, Angel has told me things about her daddy that made it clear he was a good man with a sharp sense of humor. He always made me smile when I'd be on the phone and he'd ask Angel, loud enough for me to hear: "Which one are you talking with now?" I know this is a very difficult time for both you and Angel. But with each other's help, I know you'll get through it together.
Take good care,
Love,
Boston Joe

I met Pete a few times in the past because I have been good friends with Angel for several years. I took Angel home to Maryland about 1.5 years ago and stayed at Pete and Patties house for a few days they treated me like a king Pete was very funny and liked to joke around with me you could tell he loved life and his family he was really a Joy to be around. He will be missed so sorry for your loss Patty and Angel love you both!

Our deepest condolences go out to you, Patti, and the rest of the family. May God comfort and hold you in His arms as you go through this difficult time! Pete was a good man; he's now with his Lord and sees Him face to face.

Patti, I am so very very sorry to hear about Pete, and very sad for the loss you and your family are experiencing, losing such a wonderful man. He was a true character, and a truly generous soul. I always think of him as the energizer bunny, as if his days here on earth would never end. Look out heaven! Love and hugs Patti. Please give my love and condolences to Richard, Lisa & the kids as well. XO

I love you Daddy. I love the way we teased each other. I tried to make sure you laughed at least once a day because "laughter is good for you" as you said all the time. I didn't find out what being Daddy's Little Girl was like until a few years ago, but you made sure I knew I was then. My life will never be the same. I love you.
