Pops, I will miss talking with you in the neighborhood. We had some good times. I wasn't able to tell you in person that this weekender is now a resident. You would have been glad to know that. Love you!!!! Until we meet again. RIP Pops ❤️

Pops was one of a kind. I'm thankful I was able to get to know him throughout the years. He once asked me if I could bring him back a scratch-off lottery ticket from Lucky's. I told him of course and he said whatever he won, even if it was a million dollars, he would split it with me 50/50. Pretty much sums up who he was to me. I'll miss him. And I'll particularly miss the two of us discussing how to fix the Dallas Cowboys each year. Visits to the lake won't quite be the same without him.

I will miss seeing Pops in the neighborhood. Over the few years that I had know him, we had some good talks over cigars and beers.
Sending thoughts and prayers to Steve, Teresa and their families.
