Pawpaw, I miss you. You were truly one of the greatest men to walk this earth and I'm blessed to have had you in my life for the last 15 years. I miss our talks and your stories. I know "the boys" are missing seeing you after school. I haven't managed to sit in the swing yet, but I will, and I know the tears will come from the wonderful memories that will flood my mind. Until we meet again....love you forever...
