Thank you, Papa, for being such an inspiration to so many friends and family. In my eyes, and I am sure in the eyes of many, you and Nana always have been and always will be the model of love and commitment.

I will never forget your laugh ("This isn't Christian Saturday!"), your love of children (especially the enormous bowls of ice cream you are famous for), and your rock-solid reliability. I will miss you dearly, and I will love you dearly as well. Rest in peace.
