Papa Bear

I wanted to take the time this weekend
to speak of a man that has left us here on earth,
but I know he is watching us from above.
'Papa Bear'


I never had a dad growing up,
and this man, my Father-in-Law,
treated me as his own.
He even walked me down the aisle
as you can see above.
Before we started our walk, 
he knew how nervous I was by my shaking. 
He put his hand on mine and 
told me that everything was going to be alright.
He was always able to put me at ease and
was always so super sweet to me.
We would always joke around together as well.
One of our little jokes was that him and 
my Mother-in-Law paid me to marry their son...
Whenever we all got together,
he would remind my husband of that 
and we would giggle.
Although we were not blood-related,
the 33 years of knowing him will be time I will always cherish
and time that he made me feel as if I had a Dad.
He treated me with respect, sweetness and love
and I will have a hole in my heart now that he is gone.
Take care My Papa Bear,
I can't wait to see you and give you a hug again.
