  • My grandfather has and always will be my hero. Poppy is my best friend and one of the most selfless people I have ever met. My father's father has always had an exceptionally strong presence in my life. When my parents decided to divorce he moved in with my mom, brother and myself to keep a male figure in the household. Poppy was the best thing that could have ever happened to my brother and I. Without him being in our lives in the way he was I do not think we would have ended up as level-headed as we are today.

    Poppy did everything for us. He drove us where we needed to go, made our lunches, nagged us about our homework, gave us advice and just did ANYTHING we needed. All of our friends loved Poppy and after a while he became Poppy to everyone we introduced him to.

    In the beginning of December, my fiance proposed. It wasn't until he told me afterwards that he had asked Poppy's permission did I tear up. He knew as well as anyone that Poppy was one of the most important people to ask. On June 30th Poppy will walk me half way down the aisle to my mom and dad. No person is more deserving to give me away than him.
