My deepest sympathy for Megan, Sam and Dion Family. Words cannot describe the shock I am feeling about the loss of one of my oldest and best friend. I grew up with the Dion family in Southborough along with our two big families. We shared a lot of memories throughout the years and I cherish the fact I got to know and be a part of such a bighearted person.

Pete was larger than life and would go out of his way to make you feel at home whenever you were around him. I just recently told some of my "Pete" stories to my neighbors and we were cracking up with roaring laughter. I will miss my dear friend immensely - Rest in Peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. May the Dion family find comfort like I have in times like these, in knowing that God will soon end all tears and pain. He also promises that we will see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection (Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29). Please accept my condolences at this difficult time.
