    To the family
    I only met Pete on Mothers Day this year.
    He reminded me of my dad. My folks also passed at 58 and 60 from illness.
    The hourand a half I spent with him helping him shop was very uplifting.
    He talked of his life in bits and I felt the pain he was going through.
    My condolences to you
    May he Rest In Peace now
