  9. My heart goes out to you all! PeterBum was the best he made the time I spent in moroni as a teenage city kid not so hard he always made me laugh, and I’ll never forgot when I would lay in the road when he was coming up and he would pretend he was going to run me over then get out and tease me about being a hoodlum and then hug me real hard. I loved him very much he will al in my heart

    We are so sorry to hear of Pete’s passing. I can remember, as if yesterday, your family living across the street. You took Layne and I in as part of your family when our parents and older siblings went out of town for several days. I also recall the family’s excitement when Pete would spend time at home from military service. A great guy- through and through! Thank you Carolyn for speaking at our mother’s funeral. You did a great job.
    Requiescet in pace Pete,
    Christine and Earl Arnoldson
