From Poppy, with Love 2: More Letters from a Grandfather to the Grandchildren He Isn't Allowed to Seeby John Killinger
When John Killinger published FROM POPPY, WITH LOVE, a volume of letters for the grandchildren he isn't allowed to visit, he thought he had provided all the information his grandchildren would need to understand their paternal grandparents and their feelings about things. He soon found that he missed writing to the grandchildren, however, so continued to jot down his thoughts. Before he knew it, he had another book-length collection of these letters.
In this second volume, he notes, he could touch on many things not dealt with in the first-new memories of their father as a child; musings on education; favorite TV programs; hearing from former first lady Barbara Bush; the death of their Great-uncle Jack, who was a vice-president of Sears; reflections on heaven and what it might be like; getting a new puppy named Toby; and enjoying another Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Even readers who haven't had a problem getting to see their grandchildren will enjoy the naked sensitivity of these letters and the many subjects they touch upon. Collectively, they are about what it means to be deeply human and to truly care about one's family.
