As I have said in previous posts, Poppy has cancer. He has gone through chemo many times, has had surgeries, he has been so very sick. Recently, he has decided to stop chemo. Quality of life type of thing. So this Father's Day was so very important. This is so hard to type....but this will more than likely be his last. Hospice starts this week and he is simply tired. The children are aware of this and carefully picked out their cards for him, as did Chad and myself. Yesterday we hugged him a little longer, and enjoyed the little things. We talked about how it was 10 years ago that we gave Poppy a Father's Day card that said Happy Father's Day Grandpa. You see, he wasn't a grandpa yet. It was our way of telling him that he was going to be. Now THAT was a Father's Day.
So, there is the little insight into who Poppy is. He is one of the best men....best PEOPLE... I have ever known. I know I am not alone in saying this.
Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
