I ham the pleasure to have my Far Far for nearly 27 years. We had shared so many wonderful memories. At the age of 3 or 4 Far Far taught me the family game, Hearts, by letting me sit on his lap and help him, by the age of 8, I was playing along side him. i I have always said I've been blessed to know him but Double Blessed to be related to him and so close to him as I was.
Proud to be one of Far Far's girls. Love you always
