    Hi, I’m one of Pete’s step children, Gerry Anderson. Thank you all so much for your postings! I do remember Dan and Kay McGill. I had also went fishing & hunting with Dan, Jim, and Pete as a child. I’m blessed to have known both of them. Lots of good memories!
    Thank you Kay, I hope you and your family are all doing well!
