    Grandpa Pete – You will forever be in my heart. I will always remember all the GREAT times I had in life because of you. You loved to see your grandkids smile, and be around family. A trait you have instilled in me. I will always remember out trips to Florida, going to the Amusement Parks, and the time you got pulled over bringing me back to Jr. High School. I am grateful that you were able to be at my wedding, and thankful for all you have taught me. I will love you always and you will never be forgotten. I will see you around!! Love ~ Roni’
