"My condolences to Pete's entire family and Mary as well. Pete was a one of a kind with whom I rode many midnight shifts. His stories and wisdom always brought a smile to my face. He shall be missed by many and all of us who wore the gray bag with him. Rest in peace Pete."

"Mary, Edna Lee, Mathew and Kyle...I am so very sorry about the loss of Pete. He was a special friend for many years. I always enjoyed talking to him about his cats, which made me realize he was very tenderhearted. I am especially thankful to him for rescuing, caring, and finding a home for stray cats who found their way into his life over the years. I'll miss you Pete, but I know heaven just gained another angel. Rest In Peace. With love, Barbara "
