Liberatore "Pete" Mattarese      




 Liberatore "Pete"


  January 14, 1926 -

May 7, 2012


A light is from our household gone

A voice we loved is stilled,

A place is vacant in our home

Which never can be filled.

God gave us a beautiful father–

A father who never grew old

You were always there with

a helping hand

Help us now to accept His plan.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore

As time goes by, we miss you more

Your loving smile, your gentle face

No one can take our "father’s place".
