  • My Poppa.

    He finished well, a gentle man and wonderful grandfather.

    Will never forget the cheekiness, the constant graft of cutting and stacking firewood, keeping bees and having a laugh.

    Dearly missed ❤️

  • He loved making honey mead, playing the accordion and smoking a pipe. Wonderful Poppa.
