Dear Kelly, Becky and Michael. Jeff and I are so very sorry. I met Petie on one of my visits to Waynesboro. I know that he loved his children and grandchildren very much as well as his pets. I loved and laughed about his enthusiasm recently over his new baby brother, Dexter. Please know that your Columbus Family on Cline Street is thinking of all of you. Love, Chel
