Papa | September 2013

Since I told you about my Nena yesterday. I thought today would be fitting if we told you about my grandfather or Papa. 

Papa shaved his head a few days before Nena lost her hair. I thought this was crazy because I've never seen him with anything less than a full head of hair and for an "older gentleman" he has quite a bit of it. He also organized a wide #prayforbet movement in their local North Carolina community. 

This may seem like a lot and it is definitely, it also is just my Papa being himself.

My Papa is the most selfless guy you may ever meet. He retired when I was in middle school and has since been a freelance/freeservice guy. He builds and creates and does electrical work and honestly I can't think of anything he can't do. He is the epitome of Mr. Fix It. And he does it all for free. 

In this picture you can find him walking towards a building he built for his church from scratch. It is behind the church and it is a building just for cooking. A few times a year his church hosts a huge fish fry to raise money for lots of things and my papa felt like this would be instrumental to their events. It has been and will continue to be. 

This is just one of many stories I could tell you. Years and years of service that one. And he is the rock my Nena needs right now.
