Thank you everyone for the kind words! Popps was laid to rest Wednesday. The service was at his and my childhood church. We come from a small town. There were friends of his that came into town that he hadn't seen in last 40 years, well since I was born. Times are hard now, but I now they will get better. I have a daughter barely 2 years old, yes I had a kid late in life. She brings me up and I'm grateful for her inning innocence. Unlike popps who became a father at barely the age of 18 after I was born. I lost my mom 5 years ago to cancer as well. That was tough and I thought I'd handle my dad's passing better. Haha, yeah right, dummy.
Anyways I felt like getting some stuff out and what a better way then to do it with strangers.
