  4. Dear Kathy and family, We were shocked to learn this morning that Pete passed away last week. As a family who lived next door for many years we have many wonderful memories of Pete and your family. We were fortunate to have those many years to do things together as friends and neighbors. We know Pete had many uncomfortable experiences over the last years of his life, however he never seemed to let those things bring him down or make him seem discouraged. We will continue to keep Pete and all of you in our prayers. God willing, we hope to have the opportunity to return to Virginia next year and visit with you. Peace and blessings to all of you, Carmen and Mike Schaner

  5. We have an extremely special group of friends from U of Del days. Pete is such a loved part of that group. Personally, I have wonderful memories of Pete. He has been, and always will be in my heart and soul, as well as that of our group’s. Always loved ya Pete.
