I can almost hear him saying, to Ms. Bobbie I'm here where you. As a little girl, he would let me stay and play all day, and when I was tired he'd walk me home. As an adult I moved back home, and after work he and I would talk and ramble in the back or cut grass and when it was dark he'd walk me home. I loved him like a Dad, Thank you for sharing pops. You all have my deepest sympathy.
