my grandpa, known as our papa, passed away on wednesday morning. my heart is heavy as i realize papa is no longer with us, but it brings me such comfort knowing he is no longer suffering.
papa, i miss you so much already. i miss your wood shop with you in it. i miss your garden & your old country music.
papa, i'll treasure the little gifts you made me. i'll smile when a cashier hands me a golden dollar, remembering you once gave us a whole pouch of them at christmas. papa, i'll plant that homemade wooden planter you made for me last summer with bright flowers in remembrance of you.
papa, i'll carry you around in my heart always. i love you.
