I am so blessed to have been able to have 19 years of pure love and lifelong memories with my Poppa. Any time I came to visit he always had a smile on his face and a few jokes to tell. He will definitely be missed. He is now in his eternal home with his loved ones that has passed away before him, he is happy with no pain nor suffering and that is the most comforting thing to know during this hard time and also knowing we will all be together again one day. He will never be forgotten.
With Love Always,
