To our dearest Poppy, finding any one word to describe you is so difficult. We adored you! You brought so much wisdom, love and guidance to our lives. You were an exemplary role model who will be in our hearts forever. The pain of having to say goodbye is the true reflection of the immense love we felt and continue to feel for you. You may be gone but your legacy is eternal. Love Jake and Nick
