    To all the loving family of Pete. I am so sorry for your loss. Just wanted to pass on how much Pete and Judy meant to me,as such wonderful neighbours. I always felt safe living on Elgin as a single gal. Felt like a family that I have never had in any neighborhood before and even now since I have moved. No other neighbours compare to the kindness I felt from all of the folks on the street. Oh and Stevie my pup sure had one BIG crush on Bojangles. The two of them would play, I couldn't keep her away. Just have to include a funny story.. friends of mine wanted to have a fun dress up party and I didn't want to walk down in a big pink neon wig with a big pink neon dress on in the middle of the day so to save me the embarrassment Pete offered to take me down the few blocks on his bike and MAN did arrive in style with a few good laughs along the way. I Will never forget get his laugh, his smile his great sense of humour. Pete was a great man and I  feel blessed to have known him. All my love to all of you. 
    Ps miss seeing you Judy always loved our chats. I'm sending lots of hugs and strength to get through.
