All these years you’ve been in my life and not once have I ever called you grandpa I called you James, there was no specific reason but you loved it and referred to yourself as “my” James♥️ I remember all the times I would come up to your job at the deli and you knew what I was there for😭 that general tso chicken and even at the house you always loved to cook for me and i’ll cherish those moments with you forever. I wish you could’ve gotten the chance to meet Liberty but i’ll make sure to tell her all about her great grandpa Papa Smurf, who loved to cook, dance, watch WWE, play his keyboard, and have fun with his family♥️ I hope you Resting in Peace now, I love you

You are truly loved by your children and grandchildren. Your personality was bigger than you and I will always cherish the time we had with each other. This really hurt me deep but I know you're no longer suffering or in pain. To be absent from the body is to be present with our Heavenly Father, The Most High. You leave behind people that really love you and will carry on your legacy. Rest peacefully Lil Man(Papa Smurf). Love your oldest Toni and grand babies Camille,Caleb and Calliah
