Papa, I will always remember you for being a man who loved secret doors, and hidden compartments. You taught me how to love the way machines were put together by helping me take them apart with, let's say, occasional success. You taught me that anyone can be a hero if you show up on someones worst day and just lend a hand. You were always willing to take me to the events and shows no one else wanted to go to. You loved my pets like they were people too. You showed me how to drive(and speed), program a computer, and be kind to someone you love even when you're angry with them. You were full of jokes, often told at dinner to make Jeanne squirm and children giggle. You were always a gentleman, and a friend and Papa.
