    We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Pete Gay. Our prayers and sympathy goes out to the family. I (Earlene) knew him as a quiet, sweet man, who carried his work with the city of Kingsland in a way, that all enjoyed working with him. (William “Morris”) stated he was the type of man that was considered to be a good man. And that states the sentiments of many.
