My sincere regrets to all my old friend’s family. Pete (Pitou) was my first childhood friend when we moved from Montreal to St. Paul in 1945. We were neighbors as I lived with my Grandparents , Dr. Decosse. He helped me learn English, introduced me to hunting rabbits with slingshots, how to play Kick the Can, make fudge when his Mom was working and we listened to a Hank Williams record over and over . Lots of other good memories. May he rest in peace.
