Guest Book

What are the qualities shown by my cousin Peter that made him so dear to his family, extended family, and friends? He was kind and caring to his loved ones, but also to those he met in the larger world. He as funny, witty but never mean. He did good deeds, but not to attract praise or attention to himself. He was an all around "stand up" kind of guy. We will hold him in our hearts always. Until we meet again. Teresa Iannitelli Wilson

Pete brought light to everyone around him -- through his work helping people see; and through his boundless love and devotion to Pat, his family, and dear friends; deep and steadfast faith; and selfless stewardship to his community and to those who were in need. His needs were simple and few, but his interests were a constellation! He worked hard but enjoyed life and encouraged us all to do the same! A light is shining in heaven and it's Pete checking the angels' eyes :-)
