Uncle Pete. I want to thank you for being a great role model to me and showing me what a great father is. You always welcomed me, my wife and kids with open arms and made us feel like we were your own. I will miss your Football jokes and most of all, your big heart. Thank you for the great memories that I will cherish forever. My wife and I will be here for Aunt Cindy and the family whenever they need us. We love you and will hold you in our hearts forever. Rest in paradise.
With love, The Mariscal Family
