Praying that God comforts all of you during this time of loss. I will miss his beautiful smile and that great laugh that
would fill my heart with joy. I have so many wonderful memories of our childhood together. He could just look at me
and say;now, Lynn;, and I would giggle & giggle. Pete, my life was blessed because you were my dear friend and a
great cousin.

The Pearson and Nail Families, I am praying for you. May you find comfort in the coming days from your faith.


Prayers for Pete's precious family.  I was so saddened to hear about his death.  I had the honor of teaching with him
for a few years at George.  He was one of the kindest people I have ever known and was always so helpful to any
student or teacher who needed help with anything.  I will miss his beautiful smile, but I know he is in the presence of
our Lord and smiling bigger than ever.

Pete will be sadly missed. I loved his stories about adventures with family and friends. Pete loved life and it showed in
his ability to never meet a stranger and in making everyone laugh and feel apart of his life. My prayers are continually
with you all  we can take comfort in knowing Pete is not gone forever. He is just at a family reunion sharing stories.

                                 God bless you all
