Over the next few years the families visited each other frequently, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanksgivings would alternate between the households. Always Peter would say grace and although we could not understand most of what he said, we could always hear our names in his prayer. Shortly after Thanksgiving of 1990, Peter became ill and died. While obviously a sad time for Marion and George, they were relieved that he would not have to be without them to care for him. They put the Morse Shores house up for sale and moved further north in Florida. They bought a small house on a lake where George enjoyed fishing until his death in 1993.
