While googling my son, ARMY RANGER PETE NEVES, I came across all of these wonderful words of admiration and appreciation for Pete. i just wanted to send my own words of appreciation to all of the rangers for their words of comfort for his family on that bleak day when a bright light of our family was diminished. Words can't describe the loss of a child, whether young or old. He spent much of his youth behind the scenes of the Sacramento Zoo where he learned to appreciate the diversity of nature. He was a gifted student who attended special classes for the gifted. We went back packing in Desolation Valley where we camped, hiked and fished. He was a very kind, thoughtful and attentive son and grandson and i'm so thankful that his grandparents and father did not have to live through that sad sad day. He never complained about what he had to endure for so long. The worst he would come up with is "Not having a good day, mom"

Yes, he had a wicked sense of humor, was mischievious, and was as stubborn as the day is long. One day in elementary school, he placed a plastic realistic molded piece of vomit on his desk, told the teacher he didn't feel well, causing the janitor to be pulled away from what he was doing to come clean it up. When the principle learned of it, he called pete into his office and asked him if he thought that was pretty funny. Pete sheepishly told him yes and the principle told him next time a kid threw up in the classroom, they would call Pete, instead of the jantor, to come clean it up and he did.

I still have fond memories of so many of his ranger buddies, especially russ bryant, bugsy and jason.

Following the memorial for the Rangers, there was an additional family memorial for Pete in California attended by 33 of his relatives where we chartered a boat and dispersed some of his hair clippings into the ocean, followed by a family reception in San Luis Obispo.

A place is still set for him at my holiday table, not to mention a small Christmas tree in my window, as well as my Day of the Dead altar, his birthday and Memorial Day. While he is gone, he is remembered every day of my life and will be until that happy day when i join him.

Mom, for the last three years a group of Rangers that served with Pete toast him (a lot).... The Mi. link-up also toasted him. Without Pete, some Brothers may have never met.

He did good.

RIP Brother
