    I will always cherish my memories of Pete and Sue and all the fun and happy times spent with them and their family. They loved to play poker and always had a jug of change hoping to get a game started. I know that Heaven has gained another angel who will watch over his loved ones and will rejoice with the ones that went before him. I will always remember and love you Pete.
