Pop, you weren't a man of many words. Gram talked for the both of you! But you did alot of thinking. You loved your family with everything in you. Made tons of sacrafices, worked 10 times harder then most and NEVER complained not even once. I admire your strength, the unconditional love, and support you gave ALL of us. The good times we had, and most importantly the way you loved Gram even after she was gone! They say only the good die young but ONLY the greatest die old! You are surley missed. Hoping you and your sweetie are having a blast! Love you to heaven and back
