When I first started dating Shakeila you were the first person from her family I met. You gave me a ride home from school in the rain even though I practically lived across the street. When I would come over your house I loved hanging out with you in the living room and laughing about everything, from your jokes to sports. Through you I gained a grandfather and a friend. I will always miss you Papa!
