Papa became a part of my life through his grandson James. I love Papa and I will truly miss him. He was funny and a great cook. I still use his recipes to this day and every time I make them I think of him like his pot pie and meatloaf. We found out the news that we were pregnant with little James at their house on Christmas of 2003. I miss our road trips like to West Virginia in that huge van. He was very kind and loved his family.
