I love you Papa. I’m glad that I got to make you cookies and cupcakes and enjoy them with you - even though I ate most of them. Haha. - Love Allison.

Papa. My fondest memory is early mornings before school. It was his job to make sure that I did not miss the school bus and that I got a fully balanced breakfast! He taught me the necessities to cooking eggs even before I could reach the stove. I had to grab my stool and assist until I was tall enough to reach...that’s when the fun began. He taught me how to make a “Hole-in-One” breakfast style. Never will I be able to make eggs of any kind without forever thinking of my Papa. How I will miss those days so much. Treasured in my heart forever. I love you Papa.

The first time I ever played golf was with Mo and Mark. My first tee shot luckily went straight down the fairway and Mo asked, "are you sure you never played golf before?", I'll never forget that.
