Condolence & Memory Journal

Pop was truly a good, good man. A hard worker, caring and sensitive, always there to lend a hand to anyone in need. I will always think if him as a little mischievous, and a rebel. I loved that about him. It makes me smile to think about all the crazy stories he has told me, and I have been told about him. May you rest in peace, Pop. You have certainly earned it. Much love to you, and all you have loved and left behind. We are better for having known you.
