“Papa” is most remembered for the love he had for his family, friends and even strangers. He was loved by many and following are a few reasons why:
He never met a “stranger”
He was kind and loving to all
He loved God
He loved his wife dearly
He loved his children and grandchildren dearly
He was a “Dad” to others
He always made a great breakfast
He loved his lotto tickets
Always fun to be around
He helped, he cared, he followed his heart, and he “talked to us”
We will never forget the love you showed each of us and the love you showed Mama. You were an amazing man and a blessing to all of us.
