Papo may your journey to the lord be full of light , God Bless you.

I remember when I was ten I got a two wheel bicycle it was a small one . Papo trained me that day. He wasn't too careful about it , he would take the bicycle with me on it and he would run fast and let it go , and he would shout peddle ,keep pedaling I must of run into the fence a couple of times but in the end I was reading like a champ by the end of the day, so thank you Papo for teaching me how to ride my red bicycle , Hug and kisses to you Papo
