I used to live next door to Pete and Ronnie . And after Ronnie passed away I woulx bring him dinner once in awhile . We used to sit and talk about the fish we caught and I’d talk to him about the deer I harvested that year . He love his children .. All if them and his grandkids was a big subject . I loved him like my own father . and towards the end I helped take care of him . I’ll truly miss Peter . 💗
