10 years ago today Pap-pap, we lost you. I think about you every day. I miss talking over the phone and hanging out together. I watch Army v Navy game every year and think about you. I wish we had more time together. I wish we had more time together for you to be around Nick and meet Caroline. Time goes too fast. I hope you are proud of me and my kiddos. I want you to know how much I cherish the time we did have and how much it meant to me growing up. RIP pap. I hope to join you in heaven sometime. Save a beer for me. Have the football game on. I miss you and love you. Ben
