Peggy. Dear friend. I am so very sad at your.loss. It was obvious to Mr that Pete loved you so much and you him. Though difficult there will come day that you will remember all the special memories you had together and you will smile. If I could take the pain away I would. Mourning is a process. I am here and will continue to be here for you. God has graced with your friendship and I cherish it always. Love Barbara.
