  1. So much has been lost & will never be known .. Rest in Peace Daddy

  2. Pete and I were classmates thru all 12 years of school at Lacy-Lakeview and later Connally ISD. During the years he and my sister, Pat, were married, we had lots of good times when all the kids were growing up. So sorry that you are no longer with us.
