I spoke briefly with Pete earlier this month and he said it was too hard to type. I asked if I could let you all know this, but he did not manage to reply.

This morning I received an email from Carey to let me know that Pete has passed away.

We all knew Pete deeply through the sharing here of what he went through and he has left an incredible legacy that others will follow here.

We all loved Pete too, what a man! The loss of him is deep and wide.

If Carey comes here, again my deepest condolences on your tragic loss.

I’m so sorry to hear this, but I know how hard these last months were for him. He made it clear how much he loved his wife. Fly free Pete.

Pete held a special place in my heart as his sharing his story really touched me. A very sad day indeed but I am happy that he is finally free from the best.

My best to you Carey if you happen to see this. You were very loved by your man who was an inspiration to us all.

Thank you so much for the update Tillie. Much appreciated.

Fly Free. I know Pete was well prepared for this step.

Pete was one of the special people (of so many) on this forum.

My sincere condolences to all of his family and friends.

I have no doubt that Pete was ready to get out of his body and fly free.

He was a man of very strong faith.

Thanks for letting us know, Tillie.

Tillie thank you for the update

I will greatly miss Pete and have been wondering about him for a while now. He truly was a great man.

Prayers for peace and comfort go out to Carey and the rest of his family.

See you on the other side Pete, and see if you can find Brian.

Hugs

I too will greatly miss Pete, he was a very special man. I will never forget his short story " The Cage ", his art, his faith, and his complete love for Carey. I am glad he is free from his cage. My deepest sympathies to Carey and his family. Kate
