Just before you passed I saw that they have cards for grandfathers who are named Pop pop. To me you are the original :) I will always remember your funny songs about nothing and everything. I'll remember you mowing the lawn and me riding on your lap when I was tiny. And I will always remember the Christmas when I think I was only 2 that I "helped" you open up your gifts. I'm glad you are finally with Mom mom again. Love you always, Christa

You are one of a kind and your memory will burn bright with me and my family. My grandaughter will call me Pa Pa because I could never replace the man I knew as Pop Pop. God Bless and rest well,
Love always and forever Michael
