 To my family:   
 It has been five months since we lost Pop and I still think of him every day.  I will never forget his laugh or his smile.  His eyes would just sparkle so when he laughed. That is what helps me through the bad days; remembering such good memories of how much we all have gained from knowing both Nan and Pop.   I miss them both so much some days but I know we will all share laughter in heaven one day.     I love you Nan and Pop.   You are always in my heart.   Love to my family too.  I have the greatest family in the world and you all make our world a better place!   May you all be comforted by the warm memories that we share as the Holidays approach!!!
