As I write this I can’t help but think of all the laughs we had many, many, moons ago in South DeKalb…..when Pop would watch TV and his head would start bobbin…….I will always remember with a smile !!!! I know the last 10 – 15 years haven’t been easy for any of you, but I pray in time you too will all get to the place when you here “Pop” you will just smile !!
