"Leaves of Grass"
I depart as air. I shake my white locks at the runaway sun. I bequeath myself to the dirt, to grow from the grass I love.
If you want me again, look for me under your boot soles.You will hardly know who I am,or what I mean, but I shall be good health to you nevertheless. Missing me one place, search another.
I"ll stop somewhere, waiting for you.

The memories that we have with you, we will cherish forever. You were such a significant part of my life while growing up. I have the best memories of my life when I lived with you, and then sleeping over your house every chance I got when I didn't live with you. I am so grateful that Grace was able make some great memories with you too before you moved to AZ, she will always hold them close to her heart. You had some great times together and she is so thankful for that. The times that you did come home, my children loved spending time with you and being with you. You created memories that will last a lifetime for them. We are so happy that we have those memories to hold on to. You are reunited with Nannie now. We love you and will miss you. We will cherish you always. Until we meet again, Poppie. You are always in our hearts and on our minds.
