Papa, I love you and will miss you. Watching the Wizard of Oz and Carstoons(as I called them) with you every morning when I was little and hearing your hilarious stories and amazing laugh will be some of my most treasured memories in life. I love you!

My prayers are with you Nanny. I know that John is still going to be with all of us for a very long time. I loved him very much as everyone did. Yes, we will miss that comedian, but the thoughtful man as well. He will be missed but definitely not forgotten.
