Pops,

I’ll never forget how you were there for me growing up especially when I had Cancer. I thank God for allowing me to be there for you... I would do it all over again! I’ll always remember how you would tickle my feet to wake me up to go run at Kiest Park where you would out run me. Also, that time you stood up to that group of guys that were trying to steal Gilbert’s bike! You were so brave! You knew how shaken we were so you took us for ice cream. I Love You Pops! We already miss you!
