Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal. Rest in Peace Uncle Pete.

Grandpa Pete, I am sorry I was not able to be with you during your passing, however I am left with beautiful memories. Your story telling, your political debates, your waffles you made (even though grandma swore they were awful), and grandma and I playing pranks on you during my childhood. Thank you for being such an amazing grandfather. I'm so proud to call you mine. Love you, Erin
