Grazie Papa!

Thank you Papa for your visit, and for the wonderful grandfather and father you are to our family.  We love you for so many reasons....

  • You didn't (and never would) allow 1322 miles, two plane rides and a three-hour car trip, one-way, keep you from being our first visitor in Poplar Bluff.  I think we could probably move to China and expect a visit from you within our first few months.  (I guess it's a good thing they don't have college baseball in China.)
  • You can do kitchen "renovations" with a flat head screwdriver and a butter knife.
  • You make errands -- even the annoying, multiple trips to Wal-Mart and Sears -- FUN.
  • You never miss an opportunity to get a McDonald's ice cream cone.
  • You are one of the few people we know who can get a tan at a two-hour baseball game ... in October.

  • You are one of the most generous people we know.
  • You keep the family connected through the photos on your i-phone.
  • You give the best hugs, and sometimes you squeeze our cheeks, too.
  • You are good at vacuuming, moving cribs, assembling chairs and sleeping on an air mattress.
  • You are proud of us and it shows.
  • You love us at our worst.
  • You point us to Christ.
  • And you enjoy the hayrides as much as your grandsons do.

Ti vogliamo bene Papa!


  1. I love Papa Scarano, especially when he squeezes your cheek in love!
