I haven't known pap but a couple years but he made it feel like we've known each other forever and that goes for the rest of his loving family. I haven known him all my life but I will remember him for the rest of my life and then some because when I come pap you and my grandfather are taking me fishing or vice versa just know we are going fishing lol. We love you pap. R.I.P until we meet again because after that there is no resting just fishing. Lol I love you pap
