I Sure hated to hear of Pops passing. He was 1 of a kind. You had to win him over as a friend and you were a friend for life. Pops was with us at the Astoria Health & Rehab for some time and broke our hearts when he left. I know you will b missed Pops. Love and Prayers sent to his family, Paul and Kelly Collins.
