    I was very sorry to hear of Pete's death, so suddenly. I am a Court Reporter and worked with Pete on many depositions. He was always such a friendly, cheerful and yet professional videographer and we had a great working relationship through many years. I shall miss him very much, not only professionally, but as a great friend. My heart goes out to his family. He always spoke so lovingly of you all. When I saw him last, he was so looking forward to his 50th Birthday Dinner that his daughter was giving him on the following Saturday. I'm so happy you all got together with him on such a joyous occasion.

    We are still shocked and just heartbroken to hear about the passing of Pete. We will cherish every moment that we were blessed to share with Pete and his family. He was a wonderful father and an inspiration to us for being the ultimate family guy and the best friend anyone could have ever had. His work will be his legacy also. He was so dedicated to giving his clients their most memorable moments, and he captured them with the same spirit in which he lived his life....with an open heart and a love of all things. We will miss you so much Pete, and we will treasure our last memory of you, waving goodbye after your 50th Birthday party. We will never forget you. We want to send our love to Mario & Elizabeth, Angela & Luey, Sarah, and Anthony and the rest of the family. You are in our hearts, and we send you our love. With Deepest Sympathy, Tom & Penny Fenno
