A Fond Farewell to the "Original" Old Timer

I would just like to send my utmost condolances to the Carfero family. Last night, Pops (Renee's Grandfather) passed away. For those of you who hadn't had the pleasure of knowing him, Pops was a magnanimous man who was always cheerful, and as smart as a whip. I personally connected with Pops and always enjoyed his company. From what I hear, he always enjoyed mine as well. It's these sad times in life when you realize the pain of losing someone you cherish, but understand and evaluate the possibilities on "the other side." I hope Pops is saying hello to his wife and other family members up there and watching "Judge Judy" marathons. I will miss you Pops. Godspeed. Renee, I hope you and your family will be strong through this difficult time, and I express my sincere sorrow for your loss.

Thank you Chris. Yes Pop's did love you as well as his trips to Irish Times (A.K.A. "Early Times") For anyone who did not know Pop's he was a great person who loved everyone in his family. He had the great opportunity to know and love his great grandchildren. He will be missed each and every day! Miss you!
Love,
Renee
