    Charlynne, There are so many fond memories we have involving Pete and you that will never be replaced. Words are insufficient in describing our sorrow to the loss of Pete. We cherished the time spent with you both. Tom and Jane

    My earliest childhood memory is of the day Pete and Charlynne were married. (My mother was in the wedding party) I can't remember a time I was around Pete that we weren't all laughing about something! My sincerest condolences for his loss.

    We loved our limited time with Pete when he visited family in Michigan. It took me a while to appreciate his sense of humor, calling his brother-in-law brain instead of Wayne, who also became our mutual nemesis in the game of hearts. We usually lost to him but congratulated each other on our rare wins. He is missed.
