Dear Elena and Elaine,
I want to offer my sincerest sympathy on the loss of your precious husband and father. Elena, he was blessed to have such a loving and wonderful wife and you were equally as blessed to have him. Elaine, you were his guiding angel. You took care of him as only the most devoted daughter would. I am so happy that my sister and I had the chance to visit with him recently and talk to you both about family and old times. Now mom and dad have another dear friend with them in heaven. May God look over you both and may Pete rest in peace.
Love, Leslie P
