    Pawpaw. That was his name. He was the best man I ever knew. He was the most generous and dependable man. He could do anything. He could fix anything. And he was the only dependable man I had my entire life. My mom was so lucky to have him as a father. I was extremely lucky to have him as my Pawpaw. And I was his favorite granddaughter. I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with him. Nobody could ever replace him. Nobody will ever be as amazing as my Pawpaw. I was not ready to lose him. But I am thankful my children got to know such an incredible man. I hope my grandmas aren’t making him crazy up there. It still doesn’t feel real. What am I gonna do when mom is mean? Who am I gonna tell? It wasn’t his time. I will always need him.
