Poppie & his family are my neighbors. Whenever there was a significant snowfall, while plowing out his paying accounts, when he came home, he would plow out our driveways! It was obvious he was exhausted, and could've very easily gone home & gotten some rest. But he thought of others first. At his funeral yesterday, I heard many similar stories from others there. He was a special man. Pray for the peace of heart & mind for his family & loved ones.
