From his parents,
To family and friends.

Sincerely, Martin Kristensen
A few years ago I rekindled my relationship with my long lost cousin Bill Pepe and his wonderful wife and family. I had often wondered what had happened to them and when I stumbled onto this site and e-mailed Bill I was pleasantly surprised to find him.
Having met George only as a child I fondly remember him visiting my Uncle Nick with his sister and family. Even though it was only a memory to me it was vivid in my mind.
As a result of this memorial I have renewed my association with this wonderful family. Their love for each other and for all the members of the Pepe family are amazing. I thank God for the internet and the ability to rekindle some unity from this tragedy.
With love and compassion and a multitude of prayers for George and his devoted parents,
From a cousin to George's father,
