Dear Huggins Family, Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. Pete was always a great help to us in our work, but more importantly he was considered a friend to many here at United as well.

Maybe gone from this life to a better life in the here after, but will never be forgotten by family and friends. The extended Huggins family here in Hartsville, SC, wish to express our grief with you'll in California, in the death of Pete. All of you there will be in our thoughts and prayers in the difficult days ahead. We grew to love him in the late 1990's when he lived close to us and was able to visit with us. Alot of years we didn't get to see each other, but we truly made up for it thru that time period. We all would like to be there in person for the family but can't. But know you are loved and thought about daily in our prayers. God will see you thru this. God Bless each one of you. Love, Betty Jo H. Turner Becky H. Pridgeon Randall C. Huggins Robert M. Huggins Herbert B. Huggins from San Antonia, Tx. and their families
