One of the greatest men I’ve ever known. An uncle to me, the best friend my father could have ever asked for. The bonus brother my mom loved so much. Countless memories and always FUN. I will remember all the good times; and you will live in through your amazing family. Miss you always. “Don’t stop believing” ❤️

Dearest Pete,

Words cannot express how much I will miss you.  I have many wonderful memories, pictures and letters that I will cherish forever.  When I think back to when we were kids I remember you as being very inquisitive, energetic, determined and a deep thinker which served you well as an adult.  All those wonderful traits along with your insight and hard work ethic propelled you to become the successful business man that you were.  
But even more than all of your success, your kindness and selfless ways touched so many people.  You were still humble and well grounded and I feel blessed to be able to call you my brother.  Your legacy will live on forever as you join mom, dad, our brothers Stephen and David and other family members.  You will always have a special place in my heart.

Love always,  

Your little sister,  Lainey XO

To Pete,

One of the most special people I have ever known.  You worked with such drive and had such inspiration and you had a dream to be the best you could be and it became your PGL enterprise.  You helped many people through your company and through your own unselfish gifts and kindness.  You truly were a brother to me, whom I have respected and admired by what you accomplished as a husband and father in your life.  I will cherish all the good times we had.  Our many nights of visits talking into the wee hours, times at the Cape and Aruba and many more that I will never forget.  You have a great family and you were a great father to all of your kids.  We will all miss your smile and everything about you.  
You introduced me to VO Manhattan's and I will toast to you tonight!  As you start your new journey in life, I will miss you and we will re-unite once again in the future.
