We were good friends and wanted to let you know that Pete Perales passed away a few years ago. I don't remember the cause.

I know my Uncle Pete is in a better place and is no longer suffering. My grandmother always took care of him until her death in 86' of cancer. I know he is with her now and she is taking care of him again. We will all miss you and your beautiful smile. Most of all we will miss hearing you call us by our nicknames you gave all of us.

Love Your Niece, "Becca Roo"

To The Perales Family:
I only got to know Pedro for a short while here at Hillcrest Hospital. But I loved his mischevious smile and the way he liked to tease all of us. We will miss our Pedro!

I remember Pete when he was a small child living on Cleveland Street. He was always a happy child as were all his brothers and sisters, always smiling and full of life. May you always remember those happy times for Pete is now resting in peace. God be with you all.

I was shocked and saddened to read that Pete had passed away. We had a stormy relationship which ended in divorce. I had not seen or heard from him since 1975 or so. I hope he found love, joy, and happiness. His life was all too short. I pray he found peace and was able to escape his demons.  I'll always remember him as he was in his 20's with his thick black hair and big brown eyes.

I am saddened once again to learn of another classmate passing so young in life.  Thank you Victoria for sharing about Pete.  I am sure many classmates would have wanted to know this.  And thank you for sharing the comments Pete's friends and family left about him.  You learn so much more about a person that way.  Pete was truly loved!  I am thankful he no longer suffers and is in the arms of our loving God.

Pete had a good soul even though he may have lost his way. I regret my contibutions to his depression; I loved him but I just couldn't  live with him. He deserved a better life and I pray he has found peace in God's arms.
