Hello all....so sorry that I can't be there with you this week....someone has to shovel the snow and quite literally keep the home fires burning.
Pop was one of the kindest people I knew...he never complained, unless it was about the weather and how it was affecting his garden. He never had a mean word about anyone else and didn't care to listen to gossip. He was caring, considerate and a joy to be around.
I will miss our trips to Louisiana in April for our annual visits.....our trips to Kenner to the casino, listening to he and Michael banter while playing cribbage, each accusing the other of cheating, and even our evenings together watching the silly shows on the Hallmark Channel.
For Pop, family always came first and he was blessed to have much of his family with him in Norco. A giant tip of the hat to Pops niece, Natalie, for being a huge part in that....she made sure that Pop was always surrounded by family...that every morning before going to school Pops great grands sons stopped to say good morning and again stopped after school for a visit as well.
Pop, I will miss you so very very much, you accepted me as family from the start, and I thank you for that.
Rest easy, you are now with Barry, Mark and your beloved Milda.
Love you Pop........Leslie
