  6. Dear Aunt Pat and Family:

    Dan and I are praying for all of you for your loss of your husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend.

    I know that every time we visited you from Indiana, that Uncle Pete made sure to take me to the antique merry-go-round, because he remembered when I was a child that I always wanted to go there.

    We will miss Uncle Pete, but I know that my precious Momma Dorothy Sutton Brumfiel has wrapped her arms around her baby brother. I look forward to the day that I can ride that golden merry-go-round in Heaven with my Uncle Pete.

    We love and miss all of you.

    Love, Dan and Nancy Carney
