Pedro was known for his love of westerns, sports, gardening and his family. He loved Gunsmoke and could watch for hours. He also loved the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Cowboys, Texas Longhorns and the Samuel Clemens Buffaloes. He was fanatic about his teams and loved to track their progress.

My fondest memory of Pete is his Green Chevelle that he was so proud of. He would come pick up my sister when they were dating and he would show off his cb that he installed and his handle was "The Green Hornet". You will be greatly missed.

You sir were worth every breath we took together. The bond you and I had was just so special to me. I can't believe you're gone and I wish we still had more time. That's the selfish part of me....the part that still wants her daddy. I know I haven't called you that since I was a little girl. But know that I always cherished every part of you in every way. It was an honor to take care of you. I'm gonna miss our Wednesday Survivor date nights and talking football with you. I seriously hope you check in with me sometimes in my dreams. Let make that our new date. I hope you enjoy dancing in heaven. I know how much you loved it when you were younger. :) You said you just wanted to be loved...sir....you were very much!!!! Love to you. Say hi to momma. xoxoxoxoxo Your "choppy" "porkchop" "joey" "the boss" but really "your little girl".
