  4. To Pete’s family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I was a friend of Pete’s who didn’t come around very often, but always enjoyed hanging out with him whenever I got the chance to. He always had so many interesting things to say. We would go to Eat N Park or Stateline every once in a while and talk for hours about life and love and God and the world. He was such a sweet, sensitive guy. To me, he was the kind of person anyone would want to save from any kind of pain or heartache because you just couldn’t bear to see him hurt. He was so funny and kind. I’m gonna miss the conversations we used to have. I wish I could have saved him from the pain this time.

  5. CRYSTAL, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS OF YOUR SON.YOU HAVE MY SYMPATHIES. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, FROM JENNIFER JONES MOTHER, JANET

  6. I am sorry about your loss, if there is anything you need please let me know and again i am sorry.

  7. I cannot imagine your sorrow right now, but you are in my prayers. “Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you.” Ps.55:22 “God will wipe away every tear.” Rev 7:17

  8. I want to send you my deepest sympathy for your loss. It is a tragic loss to everyone who has ever had the privledge to know Pete. He was a wonderful person. I’ve known him for 10 years and always cherished every moment with him. He was so special to me. He will be greatly missed. We met over the phone, Steve introduced us long ago. When we met a couple of days later he asked me if I was disappointed and I told him that I couldn’t be disappointed. I never have been. To me, it doesn’t matter how it happened, it happened and thats all that matters. It hurts just the same. We lost touch for a while when I went into the military. But we always somehow managed to meet back up. He was an incredible man. I haven’t talked to him for almost a year, we lost contact again. I thought about him often though. I always thought that he would end up being in a band or become a famous hockey player, it’s so sad that he didn’t have the chance to really pursue his dreams. We used to go to dances together. I would watch him play hockey all the time. He was truly an amazing man. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. Just remember only the good die young. And Pete was a good person.

  9. Aunt Crystal, I am sorry about your son (my cousin) i am really going to miss him I loved him very much and i always will.

  10. I am deeply sorry for the death of Pete. I met Pete last year when I moved down on N. 12th St. and he made living there so fun. The first day we met he sat on our porch talking to me for hours. He was one person you could talk to about anything that crossed your mind. I didnt have the privilege to know him that long but it was long enough to know what a great guy he was. I will always cherish the time that I did know him and I will miss him forever.

  11. Pete, I love you very, very much and you will be forever missed by me and many of your friends. We will never forget you and I hope you are in a better place where you will not suffer ever again.

  12. I just want everyone to know that we appreciate all of the great things you are writing here about my brother. I loved him more than anyone will ever know. I will never be the same again. Our whole lives we have always stuck together- through good times and bad. I always tried to be there for him just like so many of you. Thank you all for being such great friends. He loved you all very much. He was very lucky to have so much love and support. Just remember that Petey was an angel- he was just waiting for his wings. He is in a better place now- away from the hell that this world has put him through. God is taking good care of him up there and no one will ever be able to hurt him again. Please let this be a wake up call for those of you who are doing the same as he was. It isn’t worth it. I hope you all see that now. Just look around and see how many people are hurting now because of this tragedy. Please don’t put us through this again. I love you all!!

  13. Petey is leaving a big void in all of our lives and we will all miss him terribly.God bless Petey and God bless you all!

  14. Chystal and family. You all have are deepest sympathy, and are prayers are with you all. God Bless.

  15. Know that our hearts are with you in your loss. Pete was a very kind and sweet young man well liked by all. He will be missed, but not forgotten.

  16. Pete was loved by everyone he touched. Everytime I saw him he was smiling..I’ll never forget that smile. I will miss & love you forever!!!

  17. Jen, I know how you feel right now.I know b/c I just went through this with my mom. You were there for me & I am here for you.If you need anything just call. I didn’t know Pete that good ,but Josh knew him. Now he is in a better place where he will never have any pain. He will always be watching over eveyone he loved. Especially you Jen. He loved you with all of his heart. You can tell you felt the same way about him. You will always feel that way. You have all the great memories of when you two were together having a good time. Memories of mom is how I get through everyday without her. Everyone at ChemLawn is here for you. Let this be a wake-up call to all of Pete’s friends. Deepest Sympathy, Patty & Josh

  18. Our heartfelt sympathy to Petey’s parents, family and friends. I cannot even begin to understand the pain of losing a child at a time in his life when it should have been the best. I like to think of a more innocent time; the birthday parties at Burger King, the trip to Kennywood with my kids, (cousins) when Petey had his picture taken on the cement cowboys lap and he stuck his finger up the cowboys nose right when the picture was snapped, a time in a child’s life when it was a thrill to go to the Dairy Queen.I remember the first time that I saw Petey’s FREEDOM Tattoo and I asked him what that meant. He said,”Exactly what it says”. I guess Pete is free now. The verse from an old Janis Joplin song comes to mind: Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose; Nothing don’t mean nothing honey if it ain’t free. And feeling good was easy Lord, when he sang the blues; You know feeling good was good enough for me. Too bad Petey didn’t realize that he didn’t have to die to be free. True freedom is freedom from all addictions. We loved you Petey. Be free now.

  19. TO JEN & FAMILY, NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE HOW SORRY I AM FOR THE LOSS OF PETE, IM NOT SURE IF HE REALY KNEW HOW MANY PEOPLE LOVED & CARED FOR HIM, WE SHOULD ALL TELL EACHOTHER HOW MUCH ONE MEANS TO US MORE OFTEN THAN WE DO. PETE IS AN ANGEL NOW GUARDING EVERYONE HE KNEW & LOVED, SOMEDAY WE WILL BE WITH HIM AGAIN, BUT FOR NOW HE WILL LIVE ON IN THE HEARTS & MINDS OF HIS FRIENDS & FAMILY. I LOST MY BROTHER ALSO MANY YEARS AGO & IM SURE THAT HIM & PETE NOW KNOW EACHOTHER & WILL BE WAITING FOR US WHEN OUR TIME COMES. JEN YOU KNOW IM ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU & I LOVE YOU LIKE A SISTER!

  20. To All of Pete’s Family and Friends: My heart goes out to everyone who had the priviledge of knowing Pete. He will always be loved and sadly missed, but never forgotten. Pete’s life was an ongoing obstacle, but he was always there for his friends no matter what was going on in his own life. He was a very caring and giving person and would do anything he could for anyone, even someone he just met. I truly know that Pete is in a great place now and will be watching over all of us.I’m priviledged to have had the chance to know Pete as a true friend. He certainly was “Unique” and “One of a Kind”! One day we will all meet again. Love Always, Richelle

  21. Pete, you have always been and will always remain my best friend. We met in elementary school and challenged the world together. You have taught me more about myself and life itself than I ever could have learned on my own. Your death has left a deep void in my soul, but you are not gone. It is said that one never truly dies if they are not forgotten. If this is true, then you will be immortal within me. You will be missed but never forgotten. To Pete’s family, I am very sorry for your loss. I wish I could been there for him in the end as he was always there for me. I will keep in touch with all of you. Pete was family to me, also. Know that if there is a light at the end of the tunnel, Pete’s stubborn self will find it.

  22. Crystal, Pete, and Jennifer, I was so sorry to hear about Pete. I didn’t know him that well, but he introduced my daughter and her husband, Amanda and Beetle Bailey. They both told me what a fun friend he was. Amanda told me he always had a “smile” on his face and she expected him at any time to begin to smile. I can’t imagine the pain you all must feel! What a tragic loss. You have our deepest sympathy. Love, Ken and Penny Lahr

  23. Pete, I’ll miss you my friend. I can’t believe I just seen you 3 months ago. May god rest your soul. Love, Dave Becker

  24. Jen, family and friends: Although this entry is very late because I had no idea this site existed until now, I want you to know how tore up inside I was whenever I heard of Pete’s passing. Pete was like a brother to me when we were younger. He was always happy, smiling about something, and had a great deal of respect for others. I wish I could’ve spent more time with him as we grew older. At the funeral home you could see that he touched the lives of many people and had a lot of great friends. I’m terribly sorry for your loss, he will be missed, but never forgotten, and to make sure of that I have created a tribute page for him on myspace to let his legacy live on. If you ever need anything please don’t hesitate to ask.
