Dear Mrs. Block, My company used to rent space from the building by the railroad tracks, and my family and employees often ate at Pete's Hot Dogs. You and your husband were delightful! Smiles and sparkling eyes, both of you! You also volunteered so much at Granby Elementary, and I appreciated that as well. My sympathy to you and your family. I have been working with your son David on the sale of my mother's home; he is terrific! Let your good memories sustain you and lift you up. My thoughts are with you all. Sincerely, Sandra Livsey, Spec Pac, Inc.

We were sad to hear of the loss of Pete. The roofing industry will miss him. I remember my father speaking highly of him when I was a teenager. He will certainly be remembered as one of the Good Guys.

To all of Pop's family- We are truly sorry for the loss of Pop. He was a great man full of laughter, love for his family and an example for everyone. At his memorial service it was moving to listen to all of the wonderful stories and comments about Pop and it reminded us of a poem we heard at our own grandpa's funeral - it is called "the dash" - Pop's life is not just represented by the dates 1928-2012 but by the short line in between those numbers. "For that dash represents all the time That he spent alive on earth.. And now only those who loved him Know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own; The cars..the house..the cash, What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash." Pop really lived his "dash"
