Celebrating the life of Peter "Pete" Holder Owens
Thank you for signing Peter "Pete" Holder Owens's Guestbook
Mr. Owens you will truly be missed. I will hold all the amazing memories we had together close to my heart; like spending time on the boat with you, Beach, Max, and Sammy. You showing me how to navigate and drive a boat. Peeling shrimp for you to cook when Beach and I came to visit l. As well as the time I got to live with you for a few months.
I want you to know that you don’t have to worry. I will keep that promise I made to you and protect and love beach as long as I live. I know you will be smiling down on us and I look forward to the time we see each other again.
