1 Condolence

  1. My heartfelt condolences to the family. I have so many fun memories of the family and especially Pete. I peeled thousands of pounds of potatoes for her one summer (she made me!), she showed me the best way to eat popcorn is with stick of cheese with mayo. She always had a smile for me and welcomed me in her home. I know my beautiful friend Celeste in heaven will be happy to see her again. She was so gracious and full of life, I am happy to have had the time with her. Best, Gina
