My grandfather was the wisest and most loving man I ever knew. I will miss you Poppy! <3
RIP Poppy, I love you. Makes me smile that you could be with Momere on your anniversery!
I got on the FDNY in 1985. My grandfather James Daly told me his first cousin Bill was a fireman in Engine 312 in Astoria. I went to the firehouse one day and asked if Bill Daly was working. The house watchman got on the PA and said, "Pops Daly, you have a visitor". When Bill came out front I explained who I was, and we chatted a bit. Very interesting to meet a family member, Bill's father and my great grandfather being brothers. Bill wished me well in my career, and we parted ways. He retired a few years later, and I just learned of his passing yesterday. I wish his family comfort and may Bill rest in peace. I wish I could have learned more about his service to our country and other family related tales.
