    Dear Pop,
    We love and miss you so much. We cannot believe that you are gone from our lives. But are happy that you are with Mommy and Anthony again. We were picturing them waiting for you as you entered the pearly gates. WE all know how much Mommy missed you and you missed her.
    You were the most giving and loving Pop anyone could have asked for.
    You always gave whatever you had to us, and put us first. Even up until your last day, you had to make sure we had the will and everything in order. You were just amazing with your mind. We all wish we could have had a memory like yours.
    We now have You, Mommy and Anthony as our guardian angels.
    The babies came in asking ” where’s POP POP, with their little hands up? They were so adorable. Anthony was not able to come into the house to see you, he wanted to remember you the way you were the last night he saw you.
    You are so loved Pop.
    Please kiss Mommy and Anthony for us.
    We love you Pop
    Love Rose Diane Joey MaryAnn and Phyllis.. All of your grandchildren and great grandchildren
