Poppy

Our Poppy.
Brian's Grandpa.
Our boys Great Grandpa-their Poppy.
Our energetic, never stopping, always twinkling Poppy that had pillow fights with his great grandsons even at the age of 87. That would call and give his signature whistle to his great grandsons, even at the age of 87.

Our Poppy.
Our Poppy passed away this morning at 3:40am in Florida, after suffering a massive stroke at home, yesterday.

Services for him are tomorrow morning and shiva will start as soon as they return from the cemetary.

He was the first one to "accept me" into their family. He said that being around our boys, was like being given new life.

He will be missed by all of us and we will sit and remember the memories that all started by a handshake and a hug.

G-d Bless You Poppy, we'll miss you and remember you until the day we join you.

What a wonderful tribute to Poppy. I bet he's smiling down from Heaven. He gave you memories that you'll always carry, and that's such a blessing.
