During the time I worked with Pedro (years ago) I was the operations manager at Red Dot in Athens. Pedro took care of loading and shipping, and took care of me. I could not have done without him. One day I confided in him that, against my better judgement, I had placed a bet on the Super Bowl, and lost. After that, Pedro's nickname for me was always "Superbowl" - I didn't mind, and will miss him greatly. He was a good friend.

Thanks Pedro for the many memories we shared together at the beginning of my career and the wisdom you shared with me over the years. I am grateful for several things you gave me, that made me who I am. May God be with us always.

I have too many memories to share about this guy. We were roommates on a mission trip to Guatemala in 2006. If there was anybody who could make you laugh, this guy was most definitely the best at it. I am thankful to have been apart of his life. He was a true friend!

Praying for all! ~ Michael Bacon or Bubba Baker, as Pedro called me.
