Dear Pop with love on my birthday

Hi Pop. I think of you every day. My heart filled with love and pride. You never knew how important you were, you were too humble for that. I miss your stories, taking about the old days and what was for dinner. Football and Jason Bourne movies too. I celebrate my birthday today knowing you are here with me always. Keep coming to me in my dreams. Hug and kiss mommy for us. We continue to celebrate you. You will always be our special Marine!
