As you may know Pete DesPlantes went in for open heart surgery on 1/17/13. The day following the surgery Pete suffered a stroke; this has been devestating for Pete and his family. For those of you that don't know me my name is Summer and I am Pete's daughter-in-law. I am honored to have married into such a loving and supportive family, with Pete being the most loving, giving, family man I have ever met. He is a man of God, a man who teaches his children and grandchildren (mariah, chase, haylee, kayson) how to give and how to love like no other; a man that I want my two sons (Chase and one on the way) to learn from and be like. Pete or "Papa" is the person who takes his grandkids for walks on the beach, stops by my house to go out for icecream, in searching for a picture for this site I came across one of him playing in the pool with Kayson (his grandson) and even in all this mess when he is too sedated to move or speak, the voice of his granddaughter causes a physical reaction. To say Pete's family is important to him is an understatement! In order for him to progress in his recovery it is absolutely crucial that his family continue to have the ability to stay by his side and be able to provide the care he will need when he returns. He is currently at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara receiving the best care available. This means that his family must have the means to stay in the area and costs we often don't think of can add up, especially when leaving to go to work is not an option. With that said, we had to choose a financial goal but really anything will help even $5 or $10. Let's support a family who supports others. Let's give back to the man who has given so much!
