My deepest sympathy to all of you. I just heard about your dad’s passing. He was a special person to me and always talked to me when I would see him. He was blessed like my Dad, to live a long life. It’s hard when you lose the ones that meant so much to you – I lost my Mom and Dad 10 months apart and I also lost my husband shortly after my parents died so it’s been a hard time for me but know that God will help and give you strength in your healing journey.
Our deepest thoughts and many prayers . Pete will be truly missed! Will always remember him making funnel cakes at our summer festival. He was loved by his church family. Thank You Pete! May his memory be eternal! May the perpetual light shine down upon him! Love & Prayers!!❤🙏
My deepest sympathies are with Pete’s children and grandchildren. Pete will always be one of those special persons in my life. As a neighborhood kid, I was always welcome in his yard and home. I have fond memories of washing cars together and planting a garden full of tomatoes and peppers with Pete. I know he will be forever missed by his loved ones. Rest In Peace.
My deepest sympathies to the family. I had the great pleasure of taking care of Me Pete for the past year and a half. He was a great man. I will always remember him.
May the love of God surround you and your family during this difficult time,
May you come to know that the love of God is with you always,

† Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 †
YOU HAVE LIVED A LONG AND FRUITFUL LIFE, ESPECIALLY GROWING UP WITH THE KOHUT SISTERS.
To the family. I am deeply saddened by the grief that you are feeling.
Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue to look to him when ” He will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, pain, and crying will be no more. – Revelation 21:3, 4
He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.
My sincere and humble condolences to the family and friends of Pete. Denny Albaugh.
