Our hearts are saddened at the passing of our brother-in-law, Pete. The same heart rejoices of the promise we have of seeing him again! Our family will never be the same. But, by the grace of the God, we will continue to remember the good times and hold dear the memories we shared. Especially all our secret jokes we played on each other! We loved you and Faye yesterday, today and all the tomorrows! RIP Pete and know we loved you❤️
