Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Mike, Danny, and Jonathan, I remember all of you from the Clinton Courier-News days. Pete became my friend then and continued to be through the years. We had lunch or supper together a few times in recent years. The last time I saw him, he was so light-hearted and full of good humor. I am so sorry for your loss, and mine, but know Pete is at rest now.

We were so sorry to hear of Pete\'s death. I worked with Pete at the Clinton Courier-News when his sons were small and they would come by after school every day. I had kept in touch with him after he left the paper. He was a great writer and he could always find interesting features for our readers to enjoy. He will be missed. Mary A.
