Dear Mary Virginia & Family, I always thought a lot of Pete and he will be sincerely missed! While attending College at Georgia Southern University, I had the privilege of rooming with Pete's roommate & fraternity brother from UGA, Brad Vision. Unfortunately, Brad also passed away some 20 years ago. By the grace of God, these two men are together once again and enjoying eternal life! I Love You! B. Reid Boswell & Family

Pete was a kind and gentle person...one who had a heart of gold, with nothing fake or phony about him. I spoke with him, not long ago, at the take-out window at Holcombs and am so glad I had that last chance to speak with him. He will not be forgotten. in deepest sympathy, Carlene Lindsey Noggle
