I remember Pete's voice on my answering machine in summer 2001. It was the start to one of the best years of my life with the coolest family. Since then, Pete, Nancy and the kids always stayed in my thoughts. My heartfelt condolences!

I had met Pete thru the my neighborhood gang and unfortunately did not know him well. But the few times we talked I knew it was someone I wanted to know better. I took him to be very sincere , soft spoken and a good man, husband and father. He will be missed. My condolences to Nancy and the family.

I’ll always remember Pete (and Nancy) for their kindness and how they just accepted me into their circle from the first time we met. Thanks for joining my charity ride last year and I’m sincerely going to miss another brother. My heart goes out to Nancy and the family. God bless you my friend. RIP Pete
