Ronald Lee Pool, AKA Papa

Jenn's Grandpa Pool went into the hospital Tuesday with some breathing problems, and yesterday he took a turn for the worse. I'm sorry to say that he passed away this evening surrounded by family, including his granddaughters Jenn and Sara. Below are a few pictures we've taken of him over the years. As you can tell, he was full of life and love.

We will all miss this wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather....but to our family he was known simply as Papa.

We will miss you Papa...

I'm so sorry to hear about this Jenn. Your family will be in our prayers (as always).

The first picture of him holding Charlotte has always been one of my favorite pictures. I'm glad you reposted it.
