My very dearest Pete, I miss you so very much. Your family provided a very beautiful and touching service. I could feel your spirit and you were very pleased. Thank you for coming into my life and adding so many years of joy. You are, and always will be, the love of my life. CW

Baby Sis here just chiming in on the Happy Birthday messages ;) Me, mama & the kids all sang Happy Birthday to you on the 19th, such a special day that mama brought her 1st born into this world. I know you aren't here with us physically but you are in spirit so we will always sing Happy Birthday to you, Aloee :) Sending you kisses and warm hugs & I can still see you on my deck taking in the view of the city & watching the Blue Angels, so glad you were able to make it over, to bless my home with your presence. Thank you for being my big bro and just for being you, so lucky we all are to have had you for the time we did. We are trying our best to stay strong and helping mom get through her pain, she misses you so much but she tells me that you are just on a long fishing trip, camping in one of your favorite spots~ We will make this Thanksgiving in honor of you which is what I know you'd want us to do, I love you hermano & carry you in my heart always *** Yo Ang

It's your birthday and as usual you have avoided a party. Nonetheless, we have celebrated your precious life with a beautiful memorial in your honor. Many people came to bid their farewell to you, and in turn they came to pay their respect to the rest of our family. Everyone's kindness and generosity was truly a display of love. I just wish I could talk to you about it. There are so many things I want to share with you, but I know that the way you hear me now is different. Given these circumstances, I will settle for the peaceful existence you have selected. Undoubtedly, you have embarked on a new adventure, a new journey and without pain. I just miss your voice, your good morning calls and all the things we shared. Sadie still loves her Papa and misses you very much. Thank you for being a wonderful brother and best friend. Until we meet again hermano...Besitos

Hey Pete,
Today is your day and just wanted to check in with you again.
I want you to know that I have always been proud to have you as a cuñado and to be a part of your family.
Your path on this planet was tough and at times could have seemed insurmountable, but you kept your strength and optimisim and beat the odds. I adimire you greatly. Another thing that I admire and am greatful for, are those two beautiful human beings you and my sis brought into this world. Thank you.
Your probably sitting somewhere fishing and catching up with those you haven't seen for awhile so enjoy and have happy birthday loco. I love you and will see you again one day my brother.
