Papou’s Joy

My grandfather had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor. He would literally do anything to make the grandkids laugh – dance on the table, play tricks on us or do headstands! The best photograph I had of him that captured his spirit was taken at a drug store. It was from a disposable camera and they had to take one more picture to turn it in. The background was not so pretty, so I decided to draw him so I could always remember his smile and the joy he brought into our lives.
