Day 13: Pappy

So excited to be part of "Slice of Life" with the Two Writing Teachers. You to can join us too.

"I'm doing this in honor of Jake mom." He whispered solemnly.
 "I know buddy," She responded.  "Didn't Pappy die of Cancer?"
"He asked tentatively. "Yes," she whispered.

Snuggling a little closer he sighed softly, "I only have one head to have shaved and I really wanted my page to be in honor of both Jake and Pappy. Do you think I could do that?"
"Sure buddy, you can do that, no one will be upset with you." She whispered back.

Shifting deeper into the covers, rubbing his eyes, and yawning almost drifting off to sleep, just one last word.

"Mom. do you think the scientist can find a cure for cancer?"
"We will have to pray that they do with the sincerest of prayers big guy."
"I miss Pappy, it isn't the same without him.:
"Me too." She hugged him a little closer as he drifted off to sleep.

Such deep thoughts before falling asleep, She wondered what was going on in his little head!

Love you Pappy!
