Good bye Pops

Monday, May 13, 2013

" Do not follow where the path may lead... Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail ." Ralph Waldo Emerson

My father-in law was a great guy. He always did what he wanted, how he wanted, and when he wanted. He had a huge heart and loved life.

Months ago they found a spot on his lung ,they removed it thinking it was cancer. It was not. He later developed an infection ,and after months of suffering , he finally lost the good fight and went to rest in the arms of the angels.

He leaves behind four children and nine grandchildren , and one great grandchild. He also leaves behind a ton of friends

He will be forever in my heart ,mostly because he loved me like a Dad , without me asking. He was always great with my kids who miss him terribly.

Good bye Pops enjoy your ride with the angels. Can't wait to get my around you for another great hug.
