Every time my family and me went to visit with my brother, Pop would be there with open arms to welcome us in. He wasn’t my biological grandfather but my grandfather nonetheless. He told stories and gave me a great laugh every time. He always gave us a place to stay when we came to visit and always made me feel welcome. He was one of the greatest people I’ve ever met and I was honored to be his family. I love you pop and I will miss you greatly ♥️
