Not sure what to say?

Pete was a very special friend during my hardest times in life. He taught me to be a stronger woman and not put up with any negativity. He was always welcoming to everyone. It has been many years since I've seen him or any of his family. His sister Brenda was my best friend for many years. Hope you are doing as well as could be. If you need me I'm here. God Bless Heaven has got a great man.

Carrie please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time. Know that there is no sorrow that heaven can not heal.

As your friends we are here to support you and will always pray for you. We greatly love you and the girls and we will miss Pete.

On behalf of the members of the Illinois Movers' and Warehousemen's Association, I send our sincere condolences to Pete's family and extended family and friends. Pete joined IMAWA in 2003 and was a very generous supporter of the moving industry. His gift over several years of the use of a suite for pre-season Bulls games helped raise considerable money for IMAWA's scholarship program. Pete was one of the "good guys" of the moving industry, and we will miss him. He left us much...

I have no real words to say
Martha and I still wish to express our sorrow at your loss and the loss for your girls
We will not be there in person with you tomorrow but you are in our thoughts and prayers
I just would not want you to think that we do not care about you guys - because we do.

Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

Extending our condolences to the Farrey family, and wishes for peace and comfort in the loss of your loved one.
Peter Rush, the Executive Committee, and the Kellen Family.

From an amazing man to an immortal legend and hero of his family and friends. May his legacy and stories live forever in his families minds and hearts and his name be mentioned often in love and honor.

I was astounded when I heard Pete had gone home to be with his Lord! Just recently I had heard he was fighting back, what a shame! I pray you all get thru this time together!

My deepest condolences to Pete's family and friends during this time. My heart goes out to all of you. Pete was an amazing person with a huge heart of gold!! He was always there for anyone at any time. Heaven definitely gained an amazing angel! I am so very sorry for your loss
