Oh dear, Uncle Pete...I have to say that I know you had a mess of Largent women to welcome you with that good 'ole apricot -jam-biscuit cooking, and lots of very opinionated guys to supervise the installation of your star high in the sky!

I never got to meet your father but he seems like he was a very interesting person. May his memory be for a blessing.

My condolences on the loss of your father/grandfather. From what Pete told me, he was an active, well-respected, beloved member of his community at 91 yrs of age. May love, time, and tears heal your pain. May love, faith and memories bring you joy.

So enjoyed meeting Peter at 127. He was such a gentleman and a gentle spirit. He always had a ready smile and never an unkind word for anyone. So sorry I could not attend the viewing or service as I have a terrible cold and dont wish to pass it on. Was happy to take some miles to Peter while he was home bound. May he rest in peace.
