I haven't seen Pete much in recent times, but many years ago he was one of my best friends. We had a lot of fun together. He was a real gentlemen and truly nice guy. I will
never forget him.

Rita, I can pretty much repeat everything Harry Holm said. Webb was a wonderful high school friend and one of the nicest people in our high school class. I always looked forward to seeing you two at our reunions. My deepest sympathy is extended to you and your family. Dick Geiselman

We were very sorry to hear of Mr. Weaver's passing. He is remembered as a sweet, quiet, kind man, with a great sense of humor, the head of a family sharing those same qualities. Our condolences to Mrs. Weaver, Karen and Lisa and their families.
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. And rains fall soft upon your fields. May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
