Pete was the first friend we made in Gulf Shores. We have many fond memories of laughing and playing cards with Pete and Arlene. I’m sure they are teaching everyone in heaven how to play Skip-Bo.
RIP Pete! You will be missed.

We felt blessed to have become friends with Pete. We will miss him but know he's happy home with Arlene. We're also thankful for meeting Pete's angel Dee and her family for caring so much for him and max. Paul& Janice

Pete was always so kind, and very friendly when I ran into him. And when he came into the post office always had a smile. My sincere sympathies to his family.
