Great Times with Papa Ron

My papa was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when I was in high school. Although it was hard to watch him go through that, I had many great times with him. It’s been 10 years since he passed, I still remember how much he loved carrot cake, juicy fruit gum, and the Dallas Cowboys. I remember how he would keep all his spare change in a 5-gallon water jug and when it would fill to the top he would let me and my sister count it up and roll up all the coins. I wish he was still here to see me get married and meet my daughter but I know he’s watching from above.
