  4. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I know words can not ever be enough. The family is in my prayers each and every night. Poppa was a very kind man, for he never treated me different that his own grandchildren. He always made me feel welcome. He will always be ‘my poppa’ and I loved him with all my heart. I am sending my condolences to you through the internet because I could not be there in person. I hope the family understood why I was not there in person. Altho I was not there in person I was there in my prayers. May God Bless each and everyone.
