Poppy I wish we all could have been around with one another the last 10 years. I am the first grandchild and made you a Poppy. You made sure to fill those shoes happily. I have been missing for such a long time but somehow finding out last night made me miss you more. You were an amazing grandfather and loved all of us so much. You and Nonnie are a huge part of our childhood and helping to raise us. I hope you had a wonderful life full of joy and love. I know you are back with Nonnie finally and everyone else in our family that went ahead before to our final home .. heaven. My heart hurts but I know I will see you again.
Love always,

Rose McNally

I was so sorry to hear of your passing Poppy. It's been so long since we've been able to see you. I wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful Poppy to my children. You and Nonni were the best! You would be so proud of all of them. I wish you could have met your 5 great grandchildren. I know you would have spoiled them! Rest easy Poppy. Give Nonni my love. Love you, Rosie

Been missing you for years now but comforted knowing you’re finally reunited with Nonnie and your siblings. I’m so grateful for all the amazing memories I get to hold onto. Thank you for being the best grandfather. Rest easy, Poppy.

Poppy, I want to thank you for all you did for me and my family growing up. You were a wonderful grandfather to all of us. Some of my best memories are of you and Nonnie. I wish you were able to see us these last couple of years and I could have introduced you to my 3 beautiful boys. I know you would have loved them. I know now you are at peace and looking down on all of us. So many times I have thought about just dropping by with them but now you see us and can watch them grow up. I love you with my whole heart and wish we could have been there especially at the end but please know you were always on our minds and in our hearts. I love you. Give Nonnie a big squeeze for us and hold my baby up there for me. I love you now and always. Your granddaughter, Christirose
