It just doesn’t seem like it has been 3 years since I lost one of the most influential people in my life…my Papa Jim.
It has been 3 years since I heard that soft kind voice or held that strong hand.
3 years since a Papa hug…papa gave the best hugs.
I miss him. I miss him all the time.
His patience. His encouragement. In the struggles I have had in the last months, a dose of Papa patience and several hugs would have been the best medicine.
His love. He loved his family with everything he had.
But I know he is looking down on all of us. I might not be able to hug him or laugh with him but he is there. Always.
Miss you Papa. Every day. Your family is strong…just like you taught us to be.
