My Papa
Lauren in Life

I'm so sorry for the little absence here, its been a tough week. My sweet grandpa (we call him Papa) has been in the hospital since last week and passed away last night. I am so very sad and can't believe how much I am going to miss him. He was so funny and sweet and wonderful, but I know that he is in Heaven with my Mamaw who he loves more than anything. I so appreciate your prayers and sweet words- they are a great comfort.
