So many awesome memories with papaw! We laughed bout age and life all together. I enjoyed going to the card room and watching him teach me how to place a bet on a horse. He always knew how to make someone laugh and made you feel at home. He could tell you so stories about baseball he loved it that much. I’m so glad I got to be in his life and experience his love. R.I.P
