    RIP Big Pop! Now that you are rejoined with Big Ma please help Pappa (Gary Hubbatd Jr) take care of my precious Little Gary and give them big hugs and kisses from me and Tyler and let them all know we love and miss them and they are going to be well taken care of with all their grandparents to watch over them until I join you all. You will be missed but we know you are happy to be with your wife again! Love Always Tracey & Tyler

    Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
