    Papa, you will be missed. We will always cherish our Summer visits to your house, your sense of humor, days spent sitting outside playing bean bag toss or Scrabble, celebrating the July birthdays, going for Texas Hots, our visits to the cemetery to bring flowers to Nana, watching you admire your great granddaughters grow with every passing year. We will guard those beautiful memories forever. ❤️
