I just couldn't sign this when you left us so suddenly pops....I am still not sure what to say of if I can finish it....well because there simply are not words for the great loss I continue to feel! I miss you every day! I have not gone a day with crying. I loved my daddy....but pops you loved me like I was actually your daughter. We fought like we were really daughter and father. You made us laugh fight cry. You were always so worried we would leave you. So for years you kept us at arm's length until you finally got that we were going no where and we truly loved you as our own. We still do! I will always always miss you! How you loved my mom is such a beautiful thing....from when I was a kid until the very last breath you loved her! She loved you as well! She still does and has no compass now. She is lost without you. As we all are! RIP Poparoni!!! I love you and will see you again! Ride on ?? Cowboy! Let er' buck!!! Love always your other daughter???? Jamie ????
