Today I said goodbye to my papa. I do not believe I will see him again in this life. Before I said goodbye I asked everyone to leave the room so I could be alone with him. I held his hand and he grabbed me tight. He started to move his mouth but words did not come out. I looked into his eyes and knew what he was saying.
"Scotty boy... I am very proud of you.
You turned into a great man.
You got yourself a great girl.
I promise to look after Sam from up above.
I will pass my strength to him."
When I got to my grandparent's house a nurse there was talking to me and I was asking him some medical questions about my papa. He asked me how I know so much and I said that I have a son with CP. He replied "You never know what is behind someones smile."
I thought about my son and I looked at my Papa and thought to myself, "nothing but happiness". You will be missed papa. We love you.
