I love you Poppa and miss you very much. I wish I had been able to tell you that I’d made the golf team, but I know you got to watch me play from heaven. You are there with me everytime I play, giving me corrections and encouragement when needed. When we visited your parents graves the day before they must’ve decided they missed you so much they called you home. Thank you for teaching me to play and for always being there for me to help fix something. This picture I am attaching is the one I asked you to take of me to show my coach the last time we played together this summer. I remember you couldn’t figure out the panoramic and we laughed at how you only got half of me in the photo. I wish I had gotten more years with you but I know now that you will get to always be with all of us forever. Love, Alice ❤️⛳️

My favorite memories are when you came to my softball and basketball games to watch me play. I remember when we were playing basketball in the drive way and “you got game” and when you called me during the Yankee games I will miss my other Yankee fan. I will be thinking of you when the Yankees are playing.
Love you and miss you Poppa!❤️❤️

To My Golf Partner, First Mate aka “Little buddy” and most importantly my Dad,

You have taught me many things over the years, we have shared many experiences together and had lots of fun doing it. I will always cherish the many vacations we went on together and the time we spent together in the Smokey Mountains, Myrtle Beach, The Keys and most recently the Cruise. You made those trips special in your own way and I can recall experiences from each one, from the tubing in the mountains down the ice cold river to our many times spent fishing together on my boat in the keys on our many trips over the years, and most recently our cruise and the wave runners and over the water cabana “photo shoot” in Labadee. I will carry you and those memories in my heart forever.

I will miss you greatly Dad

You have given me so many wonderful memories it’s hard to pick a few. Our lunch date at Jimmy’s, trusting me with your corvette ( which I never took down a dirt road 😉) , catches in the backyard and of course teaching me how to change the oil and all four tires on the car before I could get my license! I couldn’t have asked for a better DAD. I know you will be looking down on me and I hope you will be as proud of me as I am of you. I love you and miss you,
❤️ Your Queen ( not the princess)

Poppa, I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me. I don't know where I would be without you. I will miss you every day, but I know that you are in a better place now. You will always be my number one fan and I know that you will always be cheering me on in the stands no matter where I am. You will always be in my heart. I will love you forever.
Love, Jennie
