I have great memories of visiting Aunt Marie and Uncle Pete as a young child. Although we lived overseas and didn't see them very often, they were always welcoming when we were in town on home leave. I still have some tea towels that Aunt Marie embroidered and will always treasure them. We send our condolences to the family.
