I don’t have a particular memory of Pete, but I can’t help but remember his great sense of humor and very genuine and infectious laugh. I feel very fortunate to have known him. I hope he knew that he and Janie did a wonderful job in raising their children and molding them into the most good hearted people you’d ever want to meet.
Well, Not sure about Paul.

I hope Pete laughed at that one.

Hi Uncle Pete, know your fine now , and your have see all our family there with you. I had been thinking of you, about the time I lived with you and Aunt Janie. Remember riding in your little sport car , we had a ball riding in town in U C. Usuaslly it was on the way to work, since I worked close to your barber shop. Also remember when you would try to sing my class song, “ the Impossible Dream. You practice and practice. It was comforting being with you both.i could go on and on, but well. You treated me like a special niece. When we talked about beauty shop stuff, and other stuff. . Wee, Uncle Pete , see you some day , give mom and dad and every body else a big hug. Love you and I will really miss you.

Until we meet again
Those special memories of you Will always bring a smile
if Only I could have you back for just a little while
Then we could Sit and talk again
Just like we used to do
you always meant so very much
And always will do too
The fact that you are no longer here
Will always cause me pain
But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again.

I will miss you Mr.Pete my angel in heaven

Uncle Pete. What can I say you will be missed very dearly. I remember the summers when I used to come and stay with you and Aunt Janie for the week you always made sure we went somewhere especially to MacArthur Park in San Antonio or to the drive-in movies, I remember going to the drive-in movies and we took our snacks and stuff and we put the tailgate down on the truck we all sat on the back of the truck to watch the movie that was so much fun we laughed more than we watch the movie. You were such a jokester always telling jokes and making someone smile. I'm sure that Mom and Dad and Grandpa and Grandma and Aunt Eva and Aunt Feliz, Uncle Saul and Uncle Solomon have all open the Pearly Gates for you to enter and they said let the party begin. And I'm sure you entered those gates with your big smile. R IP Uncle Pete a
and Aunt Janie has an angel and your kids have an angel up above now to watch over them. And don't worry we will all help and take care of Aunt Janie. Love you always. ❤️❤️

Funny. Uncle Pete was so funny. Always smiling and a great collector of things! He and Aunt Janie were such a joy to be around and always so young at heart. I always felt so special that they were my God Parents!

Lots of love your way!
