On October 31st, my Poppa a very spry 97yr old man had a very severe stroke. According to the doctors and specialists he isn't expected to make it past a week.
He has always been a quiet man, had very few illnesses and never lost his spark for life.
I know my Nanny will be thrilled to have him back with her, however I feel blessed to have spent his 97th birthday with him as well as seeing the joy on his face seeing his oldest great-granddaughter get married.
He got to see almost all his grandchildren marry (at least once), gotten to see many great grandchildren and even got to meet 2 great-great grandchildren.
In a way you could say he has lived a blessed life, but he never forgot the hard work it was either.
Poppa, if you are going to pass over to the other side, I hope it is a safe and quick trip for you, I don't want to see you in pain but selfishly I don't want to loose my last grandparent either.
Get well soon!
We all love you so much!!
