    Pete I only met your mom once, but I remember that she was a very nice lady. She gave me my first special "K" bar, along with some adult beverages. That was thirty some years ago. I want to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. It's very hard to lose parents and my heart goes out to you and Chet and the girls. Take Care Love You Both Lisa
