  2. I knew Pete for just a couple of years as I transported him to doctors appointments and such as he was recovering from his injuries from working for the train Co. He always was in good spirits and was a pleasure to talk to during our trips in Pueblo and going to Colo Spgs and Denver. On my last time transporting him to therapy he insisted on giving me 5 dollars telling me to go get yourself a cup of coffee. That says a lot right there. I hoped for the best that fateful day thinking he had fallen and needed help, but my worse fears were confirmed as I found Pete that day in his home. So very very sad. I remember him now as a friend, and as he was, friendly and happy. Thank you Pete for being my friend.
