A Boy and His Papa

     There is nothing more sweet in this world than the bond between a child and his grandparent. I can remember the sweet summers I spent with my own. I miss my Nana and Papa everyday. I look into my child's eyes and wish that they could be here to enjoy his sweet smile. I do believe that they held him before I did. They gave him lots of love as soon as they made it to Heaven.

 My grandparents taught me the importance of hard work. We worked in their garden, we picked up pecans in their orchard, and we cleaned their pool every day we were with them.  My papa would let me drive his old farm truck down the long dusty dirt roads of Charlie, Texas. He and my Nana did every thing in their power to make sure my sister and I knew we were loved. They wanted us to have the most fun possible. My heart overflows with love when I see my dad taking on the tradition of being a Papa. He is following in a great mans footsteps, and he is doing a wonderful job.
