Mary:

I know that when Pete comes before the Judgement Seat of Jesus he will hear "Well done you good and faithful servant"

Pete rest now in the arms of the one you served so well.

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Peter. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of his life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Accardo family during this great time of grief. I have placed Peter's name at the tomb of Blessed Solanus Casey. May perpetual light shine upon Peter.

Babe and family…
So sorry for your loss. Haven’t seen you in a few years but ask about you when talking with Janet.
The days ahead will be challenging but know
Pete is resting in peace no longer in pain.-
You will all be in my prayers.
Love, Mary Lou
