Pop came into my life when I was about 10 years old. A lot of people claim to not see color, but this man truly did not. He would walk hand in hand with me, a stringy headed little girl, and my brothers, both blonde headed. He did not care. And when asked, he would proudly introduce his daughter and two sons. I remember a couple of occasions when people would try to correct him and say you mean your step children? My Pop was a smart alec at times, he would quickly say, “ Is that what I said? I said these are my kids.” (While shaking his upper body left to right) He helped to mold us with his love and understanding. I have never seen a man love like he did, and I probably never will again. I have no idea what our lives are going to be like without him in it. I am grateful for the time I had with him, the love he gave me, the lessons he taught me, and the smiles he brought and will continue to bring when I think about him. Just about everything reminds me of him in some way right now. Right now those memories bring tears, but one day I will smile in remembrance of my Pop David Paul Toussaint. I love you Pop.
