I first met Papa B over 10 years ago after my father passed away. I adopted him as my dad and enjoyed talking with him, laughing at his stories and just being around him. He was the best, and made me feel loved and happy. I know I will see him again and feel I have the best guardian angel ever watching over all of us. Just a really great man and I was really blessed to know him and be a part of the great family he raised. Love you Papa B
