    Papa, a hero. One of a kind and angelic in his life (and death). He was married to my Grams for 60+ years. How divine. He had a slight New York accent, though you get the sense that he belonged everywhere and with everyone. Unhinging his dentures with a silly face at the dinner table when I was a child… Oh, he was a character! I miss you.
