Dear Ms. Pearl and children--I was sorrowful to learn of the loss of your beloved. Pete was my friend, too, and I shall remember his life and service with respect and admiration. Something isn't really lost if we know where it is, and we know where he is and that we will see him again. "Strew flowers on his grave but weep not for he slumbers with the angels."
Jack Brinkley, m.c. 90th - 97th Congresses
