Connie and family, So sorry to hear about Pete's passing. He was such a happy person and loved to play cards with his friends at AWL. I always enjoyed my visits with you at AWL and a few of the group breakfasts and will always cherish the memories. So glad I got to see you this fall before you left for the season. May the wonderful memories you have help you all through this most difficult time. If you need anything at all let me know. Pete is no longer suffering and is probably playing cards with his friends including Dolly and Bill. He is now that special angel watching over his family and special friends.
