28 years today & it still feels like it was yesterday. I miss your smile, your voice, your hugs, your smell after putting on your Old Spice, I miss my Poppy. I know you are watching over all of us. You were taken too soon. You were robbed of so many memories from your grandkids & now all of your great grandkids. We honor your memory every day & I hope I've made you proud of me. I love you Poppy!!
