YOU WILL BE IN MY HEART FOREVER.
FROM THE FIRST TIME WE MET YOU AND MOM MADE ME FEEL LIKE PART OF THE FAMILY.
I AM HONORED TO BE ABLE TO CALL YOU DAD PESTCH.
I WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH
What can I say except you will be in my heart forever.
You and mom always made me feel like I was part of your family
from the first day I met you.
I am honored to be able to call you dad petsch.
I’ll never forget you asking me for a kiss the first time I met you because it was St. Patrick’s day and you were proudly wearing your “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirt! Never would pass up a chance to kiss a pretty lady. We all will miss you Ed.
I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me. Whether it was driving us to our games when mom and dad only had one car, helping mom potty train me by giving me money everytime i went potty, allowing me to have a beautiful smile… and the memories that i will carry with me forever.
