I am so sorry I can't be there, it's hard with my husband out of town and the boys in school. I love Papa so much!! I will always remember the time I got to spend with him in Oct 2016, even though he was in the hospital he was still his silly self. I even "snuck" in chocolate for him before I left because he really wanted his chocolate. Just the smile on his face was all worth it.
