Grandpop, Pop as the boys called him, is going to be sorely missed. He was such a strong man and also so silly. I'll miss watching our boys getting to play with him on Friday nights. I'll miss the daily phone calls asking how we are doing and what crazy things were doing that day. He always knew how to make me smile and reminded me just how loved we were even on the toughest days. We are going to miss you Grandpa but we are glad you are also at peace. We will see you again and until then know we miss you and love you so much.
