Kay and I have been best friends since 7th grade. We were together all of the time, so much that people called us Pete (Kay) and Sam (Me). Even though I live in Mississippi now, we would still get together when I visited Memphis for lunch and a long visit. I will always miss you. Rest in peace dear friend. Always, Sam
