Farewell, Papa White. Thanks for showing us how it's done.


Geez Jen, I had gone a DAY, a whole DAY without getting misty eyed. All you say is true though...He was a master Papa
I can still hear him singing "I got two chickens..."


Oh and the bed you provided was comfortable even if it was possibly hot.

The bowing, who could forget the bowing, but the pitch pipe... Remembering that really brings a smile to my face.

This was an amazing tribute - thank you for introducing us to your Papa.


There's nothing better than a giggle through tears. You just gave me that with the whole "pitch pipe" thing.

That's one amazing Papa right there.


Oh Honey, that was just wonderful! Papa would SO approve. We were indeed blessed.


Oh honey, that was just wonderful! Papa would SO approve. He certainly embodied the concept of teaching through example, didn't he?
We were indeed blessed. When my own Dad died (when I was 24), Papa made it very clear to me that he would do whatever he could to fill that void for me. He never let me down. I just love that all you kids will keep his spirit alive.


That was a beautiful tribute to your Grandfather. Loved the pictures, especially the one of him by the ocean. So sorry for the loss of what was obviously a wonderful and hugely influential person in your life Jen.

I have been on the verge of crying all day, and this put me over the edge. It was beautiful. Just beautiful. And the pitch pipe story is totally hilarious. I can't remember my grandfather very well, so I love hearing about other people's wonderful Papas. I am so sorry.


Such a great tribute and if you say that's where you got your sense of humor, then he must have been one hell of a funny guy. And you're right. Cary Grant's got nothing on him.

You made me miss my Pop too.


What a sweet tribute. You were lucky to have each other! Thanks for sharing.


Jen, I'm so sorry to hear about your Papa's passing.

But wow, what a way to celebrate his life. I've got goosebumps and tears all at once from this post. I know he's looking up from his Heaven HR paperwork and giving you that big old laugh, fillings and all.


What an awesome tribute! He just LOOKS like the kind of guy you'd want in your life and I know you miss him terribly. I know it's not easy to talk about a post that tugs on your heartstrings, but this one really did. Hugs to you!


What a wonderful tribute. Your Papa certainly had it all. Thanks for sharing.
