Dear Rosemary and family,
I was sorry to hear of August's passing. My father and mother, Norbert and Charla Mae Filla, and my brothers visited your family when I was a small child. I remember taking a fishing trip with Dad and "the boys." Dad always spoke fondly of you and your family. Thinking of you and wishing you prayers for peace. Sincerely, Natalie

Dear Aunt Rosemary & all my cousins,

I'm so sorry to hear of Uncle Pete's passing. I really enjoyed when he and Aunt Rosemary visited my family in Hawaii. I don't remember the date, sometime in the late 90s. We spent a fun day together driving around the island and showing them the sights. It's been far too long since I've seen any of you. My thoughts are with you all on this sad day.

Our deepest sympathy to Rosemary, Jeanne, and family. We enjoy many fond memories
of Pete and his family. Especially remember Pete's gifted abilities to
build his own family home. Pete had
a great sense of humor which we enjoyed.
May God's Loving Graces surround the
wonderful Peter's family.

Rosemary and family,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Pete. I have so many fond memories of working with him at O'Sullivans. He was a great man and I am sorry for your loss.
