    You are all in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your dear dad and grandpa. I hope your faith will give you strength and your memories will guide you through the tough days to come. There was never a better neighbor or better friend to the Nydam family. Rest in peace, Pete. Love, Nancy
