My Papa

92 years ago a wonderful man was born, My grandfather, or as we all called him Papa.  He's been on my min a lot today.  I sure have missed him.  But he's up in heaven with my Mema.

Papa looks like a wonderful soul.  I know my sons miss their grandfathers a lot too.  My oldest son used to have my dad's photograph on the table with him as he set up late studying while he was in Medical School.  Perhaps your Papa is trying to tell you something, or show you something.

I see a definite family resemblance in these photos.  His eyes are a bit more serious, where yours contain more of a fun spark in them.  :)   Happy birthday to Derek's Papa!  Dona  http://journals.aol.com/delela1/BlueSkiesandGentleBreezes

Hiya Derek~I called my grandfather "Pupa". This is a lovely collage. Does it take special software to present the phtotos that way? Just wondering...Take care & blessings to you and yours, Sassy ;-)
