Dear Betty, Jeanne, and Peter,I have very fond memories of Pete as I was growing up at Ascension. He was always present for everything. And even though he was very quiet , he was always by Betty’s side shaking his head in agreement. A man of few words, but as they say, actions speak louder than words. Betty and Pete have made a big impact in my life and I am forever grateful for them. My husband Mike and I are unfortunately unable to attend Pete’s funeral as we are currently vacationing in Hawaii, but we will be there in spirit. It saddens me greatly not to be able to attend!
Please accept our condolences and May God wrap his arms around you and give you peace during this difficult time. May all your wonderful memories give you strength!
In God’s Peace,
Diane (Seiple) Heim
