I have so many wonderful memories with my Pop. He was so full of life and never missed any event in his grandchildren's lives. Even if it meant having to drive hours and hours to get there. He was the dad he didn't have to be to his step children. I have thought about all the memories I have and which ones stick out most in my mind. From dancing to "Old Time of Rock n Roll" with me to saying the blessing over my marriage to my husband. He could do it all. I remember spending vacations at the beach with him and one time a wave so big took us down I didn't think we would ever be able to stand up again. We just laughed about it. He always got on the big fast roller coasters with me when we went to Kings Dominion with the church. I remember him praying with us and for us. I remember how cool he looked in his uniform and him taking us to the family day air show when he was in the guard. I remember the time my dad fixed his brakes and forgot to tell him to pump the brakes so when he backed out of the driveway he accidentally hit the new neighbors truck because he couldn't stop...oops! I remember Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with him and how he would always have a glass of milk with his meals. I have so many wonderful memories with him and I am truly blessed to have him as my Pop. So here's to you Pop. I will have a glass of milk in your honor every now and then and look forward to the day we meet again. I love you. Give Mommom and Mike a big hug for me.
