You were put into my life when I knew not where to go. You worked tirelessly in helping so many, you demanded the entire family be involved in helping the children. I enjoyed the hours we put in to to benefit the cause.

Ms. Pete was a remarkable woman and had a profound impact on my family. I will forever be indebted to her for her devotion to kids and families. The world has lost a true warrior and friend. I will miss her terribly. You will be in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. Just know that your mom was loved and will be missed by many.

Our heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your loved one. We have not seen cousin Helen in many years but we remember the good times we had growing up ,Blackman Street and the New York apartment on 72nd street. Your Mom was a great person. Your Grandmother and my Mother were sisters. Your Mom was a first cousin to us. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May Helen rest in peace safely in the arms of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

There are no words. I will miss my mentor/previous supervisor/previous counselor/3rd grandma to my daughter and my FRIEND of the past 30 years. I know HEAVEN is rejoicing and she's with her husband now which I find comfort in. "Ms Pete" has been a MAJOR part of my life for MOST of my life and I can attribute her to my successes in life. LOVE and will miss you dearly! LOVE YOU MS PETE

Ms. Pete will continue to live in our hearts and the wisdom that she shared with her "kids" will continue to be passed down generation after generation. The guidance of Ms. Pete during the most influencial time in my life lead me to a path of success. I will forever be grateful for the Angel we all knew as "Ms. Pete," she touched so many lives and having known her was a great honor. Enee, please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mother; may the peace which comes from the memories of the love shared comfort you now and in the days to come.

The world has lost but heaven has gained a truly wonderful and caring person in Ms. Pete, She has touched so many lives here and she will always be remembered by all her "kids". I am grateful to her and credit her for helping me become the person I am today. We Love You and Will Always Remember You. To you, Enee, you were truly a lucky person to have her as your mother, but I am sure you know that :) Always know that she was loved by so many.
