It took us three weeks, but we were all finally able to gather together to eat, laugh, and celebrate this man, my father-in-law. He raised two little boys, grooming them to be loving men in a world that makes it so hard to be one, and now (after all that hard work) he gets to be Poppy to four beautiful grandchildren.
In all of the activity that goes along with four beautiful grandchildren, these were the only photos I was able to get of him, but I believe they show the true nature of his character. Kind. Loving. Gentle.
Happy Birthday, Poppy!
