I met Pete when I was only 16yrs old and he is someone I will never forget! We had such good times together and he had such a good personality!
Always made people smile..and that "smile" of his was something really special. I fell in love with him from the start..(guess it was love at first sight) We ended up having a daughter together, she was born February 15, 1968 and she turned out to be a real blessing.
She Is God's "Gift" To Me!!
Her name is "Gina"
I do realize that we should have been married but it just could not happen. We were going to be married "when he returned" but he never did!
Something very sad to me was that I went to his funeral and when I returned from the cemetery I received a letter from him!! It was terrible! It takes time to get letters from Viet Nam and that is just the way it turned out! He was already dead when I received the letter!
He was born in Germany
He came to the United States as a little boy with his family
He was raised in Slate Hill, N.Y.
His mother, brother Deiter, and sister Evelyn reside in Slate Hill NY
He had a "nickname" everyone called him "Bo"
Anyway....I wanted to dedicate this page to him...even tho it didn't turn out the way I "wanted" it to..he died a "hero" he died for his country.
So many lives were lost..but one day we will see them in heaven!
I thank you for your gift to me I wished that you could stay; But that just wasn't possible The war got in our way. You suffered so much pain You did all you could do; Only memories will remain For me to cherish you. Thank you for our daughter You'd be so proud to see; The woman she's become Part of you and me!! One day we will meet In heaven up above; Looking to our Saviour Surrounded by his love!
