I have so many memories of Pete, I am his niece and lived right across the road from him, watch him enjoy his game of cards many times. Living across the road from him we witness many habits that he had, and always a chuckle , Pete would wash is cloths outside,
shave and cut is hair , a chuckle then but a precious memory now. Pete was a walker, he would walk every were, he collect thing such as hub caps and loved to add bright thing to his home and garden. He loved his cook dinner and would say your mother cooking today, if any left over bring me in some, bringing in Pete cook dinner meant money a dollar if you were lucky,
but one problem, you had to be there before Joanne and Yvonne, because this was a bit of a competition for us, because the first person there well that's who got the dollar, if there was one, or Pete would say Me MY God me got no money now. One time I brought back the cook dinner, Dad was savage, He made me go back and give it to him.
I could go on and on. Pete wasn't just Pete to me he was my Pete, he made me fell special , Pete showed those feeling to me every time I saw him, I loved him very much, No one spoke my name like Pete and the last time I visited him, I came into his room he smiled at me and said "DELLA". I well never hear my name spoken like this, until we meet again.

Gwen and Family thank you for taking Pete in and giving him that extended family, he loved you most of all.
Also speaking of you every time I saw him.
