Papa and Nana watched them as they grew. That made them happy as they smiled knowing they were able to get to know them and see them as they grew. Like watching their parents grow. Jeremiah's In-laws were a big part of his life, Mom & Dad, James Pope Sr. and Diane Joan Sanford Pope Kastler, may they rest in peace. Dawn's older brother, James Pope, who loved to hang out with Jeremiah, Sr. and Dawn; Dawn's sister, Betty Mills, from Rockledge, FL; Dawn's predeceased brothers, David Pope, Sr. and Martin Pope, Sr.; and brothers, Mike Pope of Brilliant, Ohio, and Steven Pope of Chambersburg, PA. One of the photos is of Thomas and his dad, on the day Jeremiah, Sr. put the deed to the house in Thomas' name. As you can see they were both happy. Both proud parents, as Thomas Preeman graduated from High School that was his reward, the house. Cograts to Thomas. Thank you to everyone that has been a part of our lives, and continue to be.
