It’s difficult to lose a parent at any age. I had my mother and father longer than most people. But it’s still so painful, and such a loss. My dad, thankfully, still had his mind till the end, but his body was progressively failing him. My mother’s passing began his big decline. He lost his main reason for being , to take care of her, he lost the love of his life. At his 94th birthday, he still had his spirit and sense of humor. He told me that he really enjoyed his birthday with us, and I’m thankful for that. I knew it would be his last , but I didn’t know that it would be only a few weeks later, that he would be gone. He accomplished much in his life, he was a good man, and I will especially miss his laugh and good humor!

Watching Papa and my little Mikey grow such a strong bound over the years made me realize that love has no limits. It definitely did not discriminate for Papa (94) and Mikey (6). The long conversations these two would have about any little thing would melt my heart over and over again. Every single time I spoke to Papa over the phone he would ask for Mikey. More recently during Mikey’s last visit to see Papa there was a dark chocolate KitKat bar at the table in front of Papa he was trying to open it. If you know Papa you know he has a major sweet tooth. Mikey was watching Papa struggle to open the candy bar so he rested his hand on Papa’s hand and took it to try himself. Once it was open Mikey took out two for Papa and of course two for himself and they both ate them simultaneously until the last lick of the chocolate on there finger tips. This picture was also taken that day before we left. I looked over and they were in this deep embrace. Papa will be missed by all.
