I'll never forget papa and how good he was to me. Whenever I was around he always treated me like I was one of his own. Being so close to Luis, I guess that kind of makes him my papa too. That's how i look at it anyway. Mr Ronnie was a good man who loved his family and always wanted the best for them. I would always see him work in the garden picking vegetables or tilling the land, whatever he was doing at the time you could pretty much guarantee he was getting his hands dirty. I can see him now coming around the corner of the house feeding the geese and the chickens, all the animals knew who he was and they were all taken care of. I remember one day he came from the backyard working to stop... and talk to me on the porch, and I was telling him about leaving Georgia to find a job in Pennsylvania. He told me that was good and he wished the best for me. Told me that was the best thing to do really, and that he wished Luis would come with me. Anything to get out of that town and make a living someplace better. I knew he meant well and that he truly believed that, so I told him it was good to see him again, shook his hand and said my goodbyes. Grandma had supper on so I didn't want to take too much of his time. Told them I loved them and would be back sometime to see them. That was the last thing I remember about papa. To me I consider him family, had nothing but respect for him and I'm grateful I got the chance to know him, even for a short time. You never really know when its the last time you're going to see somebody. And I guess we're all called when it's our time and ain't nothing stopping that. I wished I could have spent more time doing the things I enjoy around the people I love, these things mean the most to me. I wouldn't take anything for granted and I wouldn't have traded him or his family for the world. I hope they know I love them and will forever hold them close to me. The lord has called his child home and that leaves us with a great sadness in our hearts and a void in our life. Just remember noone is ever really gone. You will see him everywhere you go, his life will be carried on by his family, this is your legacy. I hope you all are doing well and know that he's always going to be with you. May he rest in peace. I'll see you again one day papa. Until then, I love you allRead more
