Our sincere sympathy to the Valentyne family during this time of grieving. Pete, and all of you, are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Kevin Gossens & Amy Plamann

When we were just kids, a friend of mine shot off a homemade firecracker while we were walking along Kimberly Avenue, not too far from the old Lamer's Dairy. A car full of teenagers driving by looking for trouble thought we were messing with them. They stopped, got out of their car, and approached us. Shortly another car stopped. A man got out, approached us, and asked us if everything was okay. He sent the teenagers on their way and left. My friend and I hightailed it out of there, as the car of teenagers came back looking for us again. That man was Pete. I have always remembered, appreciated, and been grateful for what he did that night.
