Haylee & Pop
Pop is Haylee's maternal grandfather (Sonya's Dad & MeMaw's husband)
Pop had been diagnosed with cancer before Haylee was born and was pretty sick for the 6 months he got to be here with Haylee after she was born. Pop & Haylee were very close, sharing what seemed like a spiritual bond according to MeMaw.
Pop called Haylee "Tweety Bird" & "My Tweety Bird" & she had a Christmas stocking with Tweety Bird on it.
Pop chose Haylee's middle name, Danyelle. He had actually chosen it for Sonya when she was going to be born, but MeMaw got other ideas at the last minute and insisted on naming Sonya after her 2 sisters (Jo Ann is Sonya's middle name). So Sonya told Pop, "I'll name her Danyelle for you." And she did.
Pop was a very caring minister to a large church in Louisiana. His family calls him the greatest man they have ever known. He went to Heaven on 12/20/01 & was waiting for Haylee when she got there, too.
Pop & Haylee are missed every day, so very much.
