My deepest condolences go out to all the Cassiere family. After having lived next door to the family in Roy I have nothing but good to say about the whole family. Some of my most memorable visits were with Pete and Shirley in their home. Although I haven't seen Pete or Shirley for quite some tome they will always be in my mind. Louis Payan

I will always remember the days in Roy with Peter and Shirley, and all of you, as second family. Peter was a very generous man and we all loved him. Our thoughts are with you all, particularly Shirley, at this time. All our love, Jason and Shelly Spadaro and the Spadaro Family.
