    Dearest Hazel –
    I was so disheartened to hear about Pete’s untimely passing. I had so hoped to meet with you and with him again in the not so distant future. My memories of Pete go back to grade school at St. Joe’s. My gosh – is that 50 years ago already?! I remember Pete as a tall/slender kind-hearted and loving kid that I had a special liking for even back then. He was so nice but in a very quiet non-assuming sort of way. He was one of those kids who left a lasting impression with me. I thought of him lots over the many years since grade school graduation – wondering how his life had turned out. I hope he was happy and that life had brought him much joy amid the inevitable difficulties that it frequently visits on each of us. I will miss Pete. Whether or not he was aware, he left a lasting impression with me (even as an adult)… to live life with grace and dignity and with kindness and humility.

    I wish you peace and God’s grace during this painful time. Know that I am thinking of you and that my heart mourns with you. With much love.

    I’m so sad to hear that my cousin Pete has died. WE were kids together and had many good times playing when I could come to visit Grandma. Pete was always the “fun” kid doing the bad things that us kids loved to do, but were afraid to do ourself. Whether it was playing in the field out by the water tower,feeding the chickens or just playing in the dirt we had good times resulting in lasting memories. I will say a prayer that Pete found peace in Heaven with Grandma Klug, His dad, Uncle Wally and Uncle Roy especially. Love to all!
