"I feel so very blessed to have gotten to know and love "Papa G". No one can match his silly, ornery, loving personality. From heated seats and blaring heat in the summer, to changed radio station or radio blaring, mirrors moved, your car was never safe during kiddo pick up. You will be missed by many!! This one is for you Papa G...."drive nuts, I do!" ?"
