Honoring my Papa

          Three years ago today my Papa passed away.
He was everything to my family and his legacy continues in so many aspects.  At his memorial service..my sister and I took turns reading about him acronym style.  We took the alphabet and each letter represented something about him.  So today...I give you letters M-Z...which also concludes my alphabet blogging.  Much love to you Papa...as we remember the special ways of how you touched all of our hearts and the warm memories we carry with us daily.  Thank you for making our family who they are today....and taking care of each one of us.
