I will always love and miss you Pop Pop. I know that you're enjoying Heaven and probably talking to God and Jesus about guns and stuff; so I have no reason to be sad and depressed anymore. I wish things could have been different, but I love you very much!! Until we meet again!! Love now, then, and forever, Trevor
