  • Poppop,
    You are the most amazing man I have ever met with the most selfless heart. The day you left this earth you passed my baby girl as she entered (your great granddaughter). Im sad you will never meet her but I find peace in my belief god gave her to me on the 20th so that you two could meet on better terms as she began her enterance to the world. I love you handsome forever and always!
