What a great brother I had in Pete. He was a hard working man that was a great provider for his family. Pete could be brutally honest but had a big heart. Pete loved our mom and dad and would do anything for them. He would always tell everyone how proud he was of me and my professional accomplishments. He also loved his brothers in his own way. I am proud of Pete of how he battled cancer and never stop fighting. When he went under hospice he would tell everybody it was a minor set back and that he would be ok. Never complained about his situation and bravely fought to the end. I already miss Pete but take comfort in knowing that he is in heaven with Mom and Dad. No more pain big brother. You are free. You will always remain in our hearts. No good byes but instead I say "see you later". Love you my big brother. Go fly with the heavenly angels.
