Pete and Gert Califore were Bill and My son Roland’s God parents. It was a very special time in our lives.
I was with Gert the night Pete passed and the days following. We kept in touch but life changed for all of us.

May God Bless and take care of all family and friends

Much Love
Bill and Eve Kelley
