Papa, you've already left a tremendous void, and we can't imagine our lives without you.
You will be greatly missed by everyone you touched including nieces, nephews friends and family, and everyone whose lives you touched with your overwhelming warmth and generosity.
We love you so very much and know that you will always be with us in our hearts and in our minds.
