My sincere condolences to the Weismann and Himmel families.
Poppie was a charming guy who lived life to the fullest. I enjoyed hearing his stories and talking politics and sports with him.
Poppie loved his family and made our family part of his.
Poppie was a valient member of "The Greatest Generation" who fought for our country in the noblest of wars. Though his last few years were difficult, I suspect Poppie would even say he made up for it in his earlier years.
We will all miss him though he will remain in all of our hearts forever.

Poppie was a wonderful grandfather and loving father. He raised two incredibly smart daughters and has some good looking grandsons who adored and admired him. If you meet anyone of them, you will see Poppie's glow in each of them. I will miss your political banter, your harmonica, and your stories about Brooklyn. Visiting Dallas will not be the same without you Howie.

Words can't begin to describe what you meant to us and what you instilled in me.

Dear Poppie, You know we have a lot in common: we're both from NY; you attended Brooklyn College and I coached basketball at Brooklyn College; there is a lot of "New York" BS :) in the both of us; you dearly love Michelle, Bradley, Zach and Scott, as I do! But what you may not have known is thirteen years ago I adopted you as my grandfather (my father's father passed in 1910 and my mother's father disappeared in circa 1932), therefore, you (unbeknownst to you) became my surrogate "grandfather!" Poppie, Mary and I love you, and you will always be in our hearts and thoughts, Coach~B & Mary :)
