Pete was my best friend in high school, a great wrestler, a fanatic on taking care of his stuff especially his 65 Mustang. We would spend all day outside doing something and get home when the street lights came on. I was never worried back then about anything because I knew Pete had my back when my brother wasn't around. Rest in peace my friend...

Uncle Peter will be missed terribly, we enjoyed the recent visit talking and laughing, I remember when I was a little girl we would go to grandma & grandpa Salas house my shoes came untied and I didn't know how to tie them, he made me sit down and learn how to tie my shoes, when I would start to cry he would just say don't be a crybaby come on you can do it, lol he taught me how to tie my shoes. the later years he wouldn't let me take his photo when he would visit my mom in Victorville Ca. I would come over and I would have to physically wrestle a photo out of him.....that was fun....uncle Peter I'm going to miss you...I love you dearly. ...RIP...until we meet again?

I remember your father always outside sitting under his tree and I would drive by and wave to him and he would always wave back. He will always be in my thoughts as I drive by the tree in the yard. He will not be forgotten.
