If Papaw had lived, he would've become 96 years old today.
He was born on July the 28th.
He and I had one thing in common.
We were both Leos.
Papaw was admitted to a hospital 25 years ago tonight on his 71st birthday.
That was a quarter of a century ago even though it doesn't feel like it's been that long.
When Papaw was given Dilantin by his doctor, it turned out that he was allergic.
A couple of days after taking the medication, Mamaw and my uncle took him to the ER.
Sadly, Papaw passed away just six days later on August the 3rd of 1994.
Happy Birthday, Papaw. I wish you had lived. (Dedicated to Burley Johnson)
