|The cover of Pete's book, from his blog|
There's more to the story: when I visited my niece Allison (Norma Jean's daughter) in August 2010, to get introduced to the newest Stewart family member, Allison's two-month-old daughter Lexie, the four of us were together for a concentrated family visit. I tried to talk Pete into starting a blog, since his COPD was well advanced and the prospects for him to reach a ripe old age were diminishing. He resisted mightily. But after he returned home, he did start one, and his prolific, interesting posts covered a period from early September 2010 until he died in February 2011. Not a long time, but enough for him to have created a wonderful body of work.
