Pops - How will we go on without your humor. You have brought such life to our cookouts, and family gatherings. I can't imagine you not being there to tell me everything that needs to be fix at my house. You have been such a pleasure to have around. I am sure Eowyn is going to miss you feeding her. She always looks for you right behind Jimmy when you come to the house. I am so glad we got to make so many memories, having you around was always a pleasure. You will be sadly missed. But for me it will be hard because i always looked up to you. Always thought you were a nice person and caring. All you ever wanted was to be loved. I can say that you were loved. Always in my heart RIP Pops.
