My grandfather....Poppie is what we call him, will always remain in my thoughts. It makes me laugh everytime I think about his Cute expression he made when he laughed or blushed about US calling him cutie pie! I'll always remember when I went to visit him how he held my hand when I sat with him in his Poppie Chair. His hands were so bIg, strong and reassuring all at the same time. It was and still is comforting. Honestly, since he was called away...I feel him more than ever. I believe he finally found a way to watch over us all at the same time. I always knew he felt at ease when he called for us and we answered. That meant to him...we were safe. I appreciate him so much more for that. I love you Pop! Love Punkie

I MISS YOU ALREADY DADDY. MY DAD WAS MY BODY-GUARD AS A YOUNG GIRL. I LEARNED A LOT FROM HIM. I AM GLAD HE WAS SO OVER PROTECTIVE. I HAVE THREE DAUGHTERS, I UNDERSTAND NOW WHY DADDY WAS SO OVER PROTECTIVE. I AM SO PROUD OF MY DAD, HE WAS SO SMART & CREATIVE. I AM GOING TO TRULY MISS HIM. MY DAD IS NO LONGER SUFFERING & IN NO MORE PAIN. GOD LOVED HIM MORE. WE WILL ALL MISS YOU DADDY.

My Dad was a hard working man with many skills. He was great doing whatever he set his mind to. At a very early age dad showed us our own hidden talents by sharing his. My sister's--Stacey, & Gladys & little brother Trevor. I remember the lumber yard across the street from where we lived on Greenwood, back in the 60's. We would walk over to the lumber yard with Dad and he'd line the 4 of us up like little ducks to carry long pieces of lumber back to the house, where he turned part of our old basement into a big bedroom for Stacey & Gladys and the other half into a playroom for all of us kids...among other things. Most of the time we would run the other way when we'd see him tinkering in the garage. We knew it would end in a trip over to the lumber yard or having to spend the day handing him tools from his tool box as he worked on one of his cars. As an adult, I realize now what a wonderful gift my dad passed down to me. I know almost every tool in a tool box and its function. I own my own set of power tools, can create, cut, build & electrify dollhouses to sell...which I have for over 25 years. From him I learned, if you take pride in your work, you will be good at what you do. I see this same strong trait in my little brother, what he learned from dad is amazing.Three weeks before dad passed away, I visited him in the hospital. As weak as he was he still recognized me and said my name...I even made him smile. Though he could hardly talk, I leaned to his ear and told him that I loved him very much...he squeezed my hand and said "love you too". I Miss You Dad. -Jean-

Heaven has another angel. Poppy is whole, in no more pain, and with the Lord. He will most definitely be missed... I pray the Lord bring peace and comfort during this time for all of us who miss you. Love you Poppy.
