I have been a very fortunate girl. I grew up within 15 miles of all four of my grandparents. I have had them there for so many milestones and so many years. Sadly, on Monday, my Papa passed away. We had the funeral yesterday and it goes without saying that he will be sorely missed.
Out of 11 grand kids, 9 were girls. Papa called us his "sweet patooties". You couldn't even think about coming into the house without Papa demanding a "smack from his sweet patootie" (a kiss in case you needed the translation).

The funeral home had a board that we could put pictures on. Everything from old annual photos, to wedding photos, and we even were able to display his love of going to bullriding events.
I thought this was a great photo
