    I miss my papa alot. I was young when he died but I remember all the great times I had with him. It was a hard time for him to leave us. Everyone may not be over it all the way….Like I kno im not..I never will be…He was a great guy. I cant wait till I get my chance to die and be up in heave with him..I talk to him most everyday telling him what’s been going on in this crazy world… And I belive he hears me and talks back…But I might not hear him..Maybe someday I wil…
