Hey Pops,

What can I say? Im no good at goodbyes...this one especially. I'm definitely going to miss you, Dad. I thank God that we got to reconnect and really build on our relationship all those years ago. We found out we had more in common than we thought. The talks, the laughs and even the silence where I knew you were fighting the good fight until the end, you showed true grit and that's something ill remember always. Even though you're gone and we all wish you were still here, we know that God wanted you home with him. Just want to say that I love you, Pops and I know I'll see you again down the road.

Dad....I will miss our long conversations and jokes! I thank you for showing your grandsons love. No matter how tough it got, you always said "TO GOD BE THE GLORY". You were strong, fought as hard as you could and now you can rest. ~ LOVE your daughter Tami❤️

My pop pop always let me know how much he loved and supported me & how proud he was of my decisions in recent years. He always kept me up to date on things going on in his life too, like his schooling, his fraternity & his new job. I miss saying good morning and goodnight to him & just telling him how school or life is going. He was always so motivated and determined & I’ll never forget that. He was a great man & a perfect grandfather in my eyes. I’m so blessed to have been given such an involved & supportive grandfather. Thank you god for the blessing that is my pop pop ❤️
