Dear Papa,
I will never ever forget how you and Bebe have always been there for me and Charlie, even raising Kraig and I as kids basically. You are the greatest man with the biggest heart and would give anyone the shirt off your back. You have always been the one person in my life that I never wanted to disappoint. You're flying with the Angels in Heaven now and we will meet again one day. Until then, I will make sure that BeBe is taken care of and ok, we all will.
