Dear Santopietro Family, On behalf of our family and our father, Richard Kraemer, our family would like to express our sincerest condolences for your loss. Though my father passed away more than 30 years ago, we have never forgotten the friendship he shared with Pete, or the kindness he always showed our family. We were recently talking about Pete and our dad, so we were especially sad to learn of his passing. We wish you all peace and comfort during this very difficult time. With much Sympathy and Prayers, Pamela Kraemer Pinnavaia The Kraemer Family
