Pop you will be missed. One of my favorite humans. Always had a hug and a kiss for me. He made the best Lima beans I have ever had. So sad that you are gone but so happy that you are with Jesus. Love you always sweet man.

He was very loved and will be missed by all who knew him. A few memories I have with him are getting donuts on Sunday mornings on our way to church or when we went golfing with my dad and him for fathers day. My sister and I always had a blast with him. I wish I could have gotten to see him one more time before he passed. I cherish the memories I have and he will forever be in our hearts. With love always! ❤
