  1. Papa was an amazing grandpa. We had so many memories together and so many laughs. Our talks about me wearing makeup, his white clothes, coins, building block towers as a toddler, and so much more have been some of the greatest memories in my life that I will not forget. He was a man who knew what he wanted and went for it, and that is why I look up to him so much. Thank you for teaching me so much about life, I will love and miss you greatly Papa❤️
