Not sure what to say?

rest in peace pete.home at last.

Uncle Pete I will always be thankful to you for leading me to my soulmate, you will always be remembered by me. I will always remember our talks at the library. May you now Rest In Peace ❤

I went to high school with Pete, and knew him years after that. He was a sweet kind man who had a rough journey for many years but that never affected the inner soul of who he really was. I am so glad he is now at peace. God bless him. Nancy Pinzone Ambrose

My Dear Brother Peter, The peace we could not give you in life, we are giving you in death. A peaceful final resting place. Love, always, Ann
