Many wonderful childhood memories with my cousin Pete and his brother Mike. I have yet to have a Christmas as magical as the ones with my father and mother, uncle Ralph and aunt Stella Mike, Pete and Lea all under one roof. All my aunts and uncles would show up as well. The smell of Christmas dinner cooking and so many conversations taking place.Many wonderful summers were also spent at Pete's house. Making a tent out of blankets and camping out in the bavk yard. I am saddened to say goodbye to someone that I grew up with. I will miss him so much. God bless Lea during this time.

Saddened to hear the news of cousin Pete's passing.  I will always remember him working on cars in the garage or helping my dad out with his whenever we would visit...which was a lot!!  I can't remember whose doll it was that my sister and I were scared of growing up, but I remember both Pete and Uncle Ralphie always trying to hide that thing and scare us in good fun.  Any time we needed a tool, a screw, a good laugh, or a fudgesicle (unbeknownst to our parents), you all were always there for us.  Love you, Cousin Lea!  Hugs to you and your family.

I have so many memories of Pete, working on cars in the garage of the old house in the valley. I always loved coming to visit Aunt Stella, Uncle Ralphie, Lea, and Pete. Sitting in the living room, backyard, or front porch together while chatting it up and eating candy and fudgesicles. Baking with Aunt Stella. I loved wandering into the garage to see what kind of fun stuff Pete and Uncle Ralph has in there. There was ALWAYS something to get into. I miss you and your infectious smile, Pete, but know you’re in a better place and relieved of any pain. I love you.

Dearest Lea.. I am so sorry for your loss..Pete was truly a great guy and I will miss his texts..Oh the stories Gary would share. Gary would always end the story with a smile and mention Mr and Mrs B...and then say what a sweetheart you were...The love and bond amongst all of you that grew up together in Reseda is amazing..Between that and Pete's tenacity to move forward and always have a positive outlook on life I know his light will shine in this world forever...Love you and know the girls and I am praying for you and your family.
