    Pete was always ready to give a helping hand when he visited...even in the kitchen ...he loved crossword puzzles and we sometimes worked on them together. Our beloved sister Jeanne came together while visiting our place on Cape Cod, and the rest is history. We will miss his singing old songs, and his perfect whistle. Rest in peace dear friend. We love you.
