A beautiful celebration of life
The kids and I flew back to the east coast last week. We flew into Boston on Monday night and Papa the Original passed on Monday morning. While I wasn't able to see him in his final days, I was able to attend all of the celebrations of his life. I have never seen a wake as amazing as his. It went from 3:30 to 8 pm with hundreds upon hundreds of people coming to pay their respects. At some points the wait was upwards of an hour and half. I knew Papa was a beautiful soul, but to see how many people he touched in some way was nothing short of amazing. It made me so proud to be a part if his family and life. He leaves behind the most wonderful legacy of love and family. While his life ended far to soon, it was a full and good life. Something all of us should strive to accomplish.
