So sorry for your loss. Sending lots of prayers to your family.
Toni, Just learned about Pete this afternoon when I got the retiree newsletter! We are so sorry for your loss. Like so many of your family and friends we have many fond memories of you and Pete from our Houston years as well as your visit when we were in Zuni, New Mexico. I remember Pete for many reasons. He was, of course, a great manager, but he was also a good person who really cared about people. He was instrumental in my assignment to the Houston clinic at a time when I needed to be closer to family and, as a result of that move, in deciding to make a career in the PHS. He also made it possible for me to start and finish a masters program while in Houston. A good mentor.....I owe him a lot for the good life that resulted from his support in my early career. Again, our condolences for your loss to you and your family! Zeke and Norma Mendieta
