We lost our sweet Papa Wednesday the 5th of May.  It is hard to believe that he is gone.  Papa was a wonderful grandfather and he was amazing with my children.  His eyes just lite up at the sight of them and he would spend hours playing and reading books to them.  He was only 74 years young.  To me he was a strong, youthful Papa.  He was such a caring and generous man.  I feel so sad for our whole family and yet, it saddens me even more for all of the young great-grandchildren that will not physically  remember his hands reaching out for a hug or a quick toss in the air.  I love you Papa.
