Cousin Pete, you lived your life according to Pete and I am so glad I had the opportunity to be folded in and we bonded. I have wonderful memories and lessons you shared with me. Though your physical presence is no more, the precious moments and laughter will be with us for years to come.

Peter, my husband and my friend.... there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. My world is quiet and lonely without you in it..... My life has changed. I miss hearing your voice, your laughter, and I miss you annoying me lol. But most of all I miss your presence and the insurmountable love that you had for me. As I begin to transition into a new year, I'm not sure what God has planned for me, but I know that he is preparing me for what is on the road ahead. Rest in heavenly peace Peter until we meet again. Your loving wife, Talisa

I can't think of the right words to say Pete. Your leaving has left a hole in our family. But I am so grateful that you don't have to suffer any more. You have left our family with so many fond memories, laughs and your antics were always over the top. Thank you for all the fun times. We will continue too carry on the traditions of family first and forever with love. You were a dear father, grandfather and great provider. You will be missed greatly but never forgotten. Rest in Heavenly peace. Till we meet again ....Love Mom

Daddy, I will always love you and am going to miss you so much. My heart hurts but I know you're in a better place and that one day I will see you again. You're the absolute best.

Posted by Christina Houston - Rancho Cucamonga, CA - Daughter   December 01, 2020

Its almost been 3 wks since you left us. Every morning seems to get harder and harder. Coming to terms with the fact that I will never get to see you again. That my son wont have the comfort of his papa in the middle of the night. I understand this is something everyone will go thru. Most already have. But it doesn't change the fact that I Wasnt ready to let you go. I truly replay that night in my head over and over again, but I know theres nothing I could of done to change what God had already planned for you. Im so fortunate to have had a daddy like you. You loved us all tremendously and molded me into the strong woman I am today.I am truly thankful god chose you to be my dad. I love you beyond measure and miss you every second of the day. Until we meet again.
