I've been told the story that Papa quit smoking for me. Well, at least around me because it made me cough.
My most cherished picture of my Papa and I was taken when I was probably around 5.
He is giving me a big 'ole bear hug as we are sitting on the stairs. He looks so happy.
I carried it around in my wallet all through high school. I know exactly what box it is in at my parent's house.
I love that Papa photographed flowers, and that I picked up on that skill without even knowing I was following in his footsteps.
My mom has Papa's old cameras and lenses.
Maybe one day I will inherit them...hint, hint, wink, wink
I am proud to be my Papa's granddaughter. My Papa...War World II vet, salesman, dad and photographer
