Grandpop, was a great man. He had the job of not only being my grandfather, but also as a father figure. He showed me how to do all those fun things: spit, curse, hand signals at bad drivers, and the art of life. I still repeat his mottos and life lessons to my children, but in a much more tactful way. The world lost a great man when he passed. He was always good for a bunch of laughs. It made me proud when the nurse said that he made a joke, fell unconcious, and passed. The only way Grandpop should have gone, putting a smile on others' faces.

This man walked into a relationship with a woman that had 3 children. He raised those three boys as his own, and there was never a question that we were his sons. He influenced my life more than I can hope to describe, but I directly credit him for making me the Dad I am today. I like to tell people he gave me enough rope to hang myself with, but he held the end to pull me back to him when I needed to be saved. My hope is that he would be proud of the job I am doing with my children. I know he is, but I wish he was here to tell me himself. Daddy, you are sorely missed.
