Alexandra Caprood

It’s only been one week since you earned your Angel wings, but it still feels like yesterday that I was singing grandpa and you were smiling through the phone. I know you have graced me with a sign from above as I’ve seen a cardinal, a dragonfly and a pair of butterflies fly passed me in the last week. Thank you for letting me know that you made it safely into Memy’s arms again. I love you Poppa! Forever I’ll be; your tool box kid. Love always Allie may June July.
