.Farewell Pop.

This man is a hero.
A hero of war.
A hero of family.
A hero of religion.
A hero of friendship and acceptance.
A hero of work.
A hero of endurance.

His life was long and rich. He has touched many.

Farewell Pop.

We love you and will miss you but are happy you are in a better place. I can't help but smile as I think of the hundreds you have been greeting with a warm hug or a firm handshake in heaven today. We are sad for Nan, but there is joy in knowing that we will meet again.

Love,

He will never be forgotten by all those he met and loved. He is a special one and will be an awesome missionary in the spirit world!

Your post sums Pop up so well Toni. What a grand reunion on the other side. See you soon.

It seems appropriate that you have a blog about Pop on Make it Perfect, as Pop was very close to perfection.
Love Auntie Lorraine.

To have known your "Pops" was to have loved him. I'm grateful I had the opportunity of meeting him and your Nan. I was a missionary in Deloraine for a short time. May the Savior wrap all of you in the arms of His love to comfort and bless you especially now. I know Harry was greeted with "Well-done my good and faithful servant."
