    Poppy, it was such a pleasure to know you, hug you and be a part of your life. You accepted me as your step mom and always smiled that handsome smile Everytime I saw you there was always a kind word. I know you are at peace now in a life where you know you are loved. RIP sweet child in the arms of Jesus.
