    I’ll always remember the time when Pops would steal desserts.

      Linda Patton Yes! When Paul and I first starting dating, he told me to watch out for my dad because he will steal your dessert. I had to laugh at this memory because I kept watching him while we were eating AND watching my dessert.

    I loved just being around Uncle Art listening to his stories. One of my favorite memories is when he played Santa Clause for all the kids when they were little. He would always let me sit on his lap even though I was an adult. He was always so much fun....  more
