Pizza, fried dough, Sunday dinners. I'm not biological but he always made me feel as if I was his grandson as well. He wasn't just papa to me, he was an extedned role model, a secondary father and a friend. I'll never be able to rub his bald head or hug him or tell him how much I love him again but the memories remain. Thank you Anthony and Nikki for allowing me to see him one last time. Just like I love him I love y'all as well.
