Papa- Things are not going to be the same without you around. I will especially miss the Birthday and Christmas cards you would always pick out for me with a cute Blonde on them. Even though the last few years you had a hard time getting around, you always did everything you could to be there for us. Francesca and Kylee are so blessed to have known you and call you their Big Papa! After watching the old videos at your house these past few days it just reminds me of how great of a childhood we had and how fortunate we were to have you around to get it all on tape. We have been doing nothing but sharing stories and laughing. Life was never the same back at your house after Nana (Norma Jean) left us but I know that you were ready to meet up with the love of your life again and you let us all know it was okay and the way you wanted. I have never known anyone to be as strong as you. Hopefully I can show my kids the same strength and let them experience a childhood like we had when we were around such a fun and loving family. Rest In Peace, Papa with the fish. I love you forever and always XOXO Sammy
