To Pete's Family,
Thank you for sharing Pete with our youth group at First Baptist Church Covington.

I once read a poem that said "People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime...", and I am so very grateful that God brought Pete into our lives! He was a wonderful young man and he will be missed by so many. I pray that God will give you strength and courage in the days ahead.
