Dr Pissno,
You were the “one I’m a million” we always hear about. You were a fixture with my father and the guys. You had a flamboyant way of telling a story and carrying yourself. I’m glad you were a part of my life and wish you greatness on the other side.

Dear Dad:

I enjoyed our time together. Many of my best memories have you in them. Great times at The Saint James Ale House, fond memories of being behind the bar. Yes, you were a dreamer. Even a gypsy,
but, then that is how Vivi came to love me, thanks for that. Have a good time...until we have words again...

Love your son-in-law, Charles

Dearest Poppy Gerry,

When I needed it most, you were there for me. I'll never forget that and I'll always be grateful for it and to you.

I'll miss you, our picnic lunches, how happy you always were to see me or hear my voice, that meant so much to me. Thank you for the best gift I ever got, your buddy, my darling dog Angel. Give her a kiss from me. I'll miss your love for me, how it shined so clear to me, your voice calling me Valerie Marie or Babe, your belief in me, your wonderful, brilliant stories that made me want to be a storyteller. But I'll carry it all with me forever more.

Rest in peace, Poppy. You were one of a kind, irreplaceable, you lived it your way, but I wouldn't trade you for anything or anyone. I'll see you again. Don't cause too much trouble until then. I love you always, your Valerie Marie <3

I remember visiting grandpa with Mom and he would always tell the most random stories and talk about his fascination with Bollywood movies and Bollywood stars.
RIP Grandpa GP.
