Pop I know you'll never read this but I just want to write it anyway. I love you and I'm going to miss you. I knew you would have to go sometime but thought you would be around a couple more years. I thought of you as a dad and a friend. Until we meet in Heaven remember we talked and you said you would build my Heavenly mansion.
