    The greatest man I have ever known. You always were there to fix our problems and make all of us happy. All the trips to Florida in that van. Every time u blew up that turtle or threw me over ur shoulders. Our weekly trips to the radiator shop and the fire hall and then a movie in the summer. You road up and down that driveway with me in that car for a year before I could get it on the road but I can drive it blindfolded now. You always treated me like a princess and when I had cassi you loved her and gave her the very best of everything. You are the glue that binds us together and I promise you we will do everything we can to make you proud. You are one of a kind and your memory will live on in all of us. Thank u for loving us unconditionally, making each one of us feel special and going above and beyond to make sure we all were taken care of. You worked so hard to give us what we needed and wanted. Thank you for everything. This is not good bye, it is see ya later. I love you Pops!!!

    So sorry to hear of Pete’s passing. We made many good memories with Pete & Nancy and had many good times in the earlier years when we were all double-dating. I know what it is to lose your mate after so many years together but you just have to think of all the good times. Betty Johnson Davidson
