Who are The Poppies?
In L-R order in the photo we are: Renee, Mike, Tom, Vicky, and Tammy. We are the "Fab Five". We are five kids who grew up together, who celebrated birthdays and holidays together. We loved and shared an amazing dad. The kind of dad who guided you when you needed guidance. The kind of dad who worked hard every day but still took time to talk to his kids when he got home. He was the kind of dad who made sure his girls were strong and knew how to take care of themselves. He was the kind of dad who made sure his sons grew up to be responsible, respectable men.
We are now five adults who will never forget the things he taught us, the advice he gave, or the amount of love he had for each of us. We are now five adults who mourn their dad. After battling Alzheimer's for 12 years, our dad passed away in his sleep on November 14, 2015.
We love you dad. Always have, always will.
