My Grandfather passed away last morning and though we have been expecting this for some time my heart still breaks mostly for my mom. She is now parent-less and as she put it... an orphan. My Poppa John was just a kind soul and lived a life of no regrets. He will be greatly missed, was much loved and will never be forgotten.



  1. Beautiful post Claire. Love you.

  2. "A kind soul and lived a life of no regrets." What a nice eulogy for Poppa John.

    My sympathy to you and the family, and to all who loved him.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that, Claire. Your mother often spoke lovingly of your grandparents when we would get together. Please extend our sympathy to her and your family.

  4. Claire- I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Please know that my thoughts are with you and your family. <3

  5. I am so sorry to hear about your darling grandfather.

  6. Claire, now I know how Anita knew about your Poppa John. What a beautiful tribute.
    Love, mom

  7. Thanks everyone for your kind comments. My grandfather was a true gentleman and will be much missed.
