Pawp, I miss you so much. Every time I walk by your office, I look in a expect you to be there. I was your bartender and server lol every time you wanted a sandwich I would jump up and make you one no questions asked. You promised me you would live until “102.” Pawp, you are like a father to me. The only male figure that never left my side. I love you to infinity and beyond. Now you’re with Michael. You both are very missed by soooo many. Rest in paradise. Until we meet at the gates, you’ll forever be on my mind. I love you grandpa Pawp. Always & forever. Never ever forget “102”

Love your first granddaughter.
Samantha 💙
