I'm sure most of you know my dad (along with my mom) adopted me and my 5 siblings, raised Jonathan a foster child from the age of 3 weeks till adulthood and had a natural born son Bill. It takes a very kind-hearted, unselfish, brave person to take this all on. I was lucky and owe who I am today to my parents for keeping all of us kids together and providing a family we needed desperately. He is with my mom now along with family he has lost over the years. Dad you will be missed by all. Love you.
Pete: kind, big hearted, generous, fun loving, larger than life, contagious laugh, impulsive. Like the time he picked me up and turned me upside down (I had a dress on at the time) in Lora Cobb’s living room. I guess he felt the need to bench press 118 lbs. Funny now, not so much at the time. Lol
A great loss, our deepest sympathies and many prayers to family and friends for comfort and strength at this sad time.
